Honoring People Who Care

For 40 years, generous area donors have set up charitable funds here — either during their lifetimes, or in their wills — to improve the quality of life for people in Eastern Connecticut.

Each fund is a personally meaningful reflection of the donor’s intent to make an enduring impact on the issues they see need to be addressed. Many are also a powerful way of honoring the memory of a family member or friend.

Please enjoy these profiles of some of the charitably minded individuals and families whose funds we have helped design and steward over the years.
