A commitment to nonprofit excellence

We work closely with the nonprofit organizations that serve Our Communities in New London, Windham and Tolland Counties in pursuit of a healthy, thriving, sustainable Eastern Connecticut.


We award over $8 million in grants each year for a wide array of projects. Many are rooted in our Grantmaking Priorities and fall under one or more of several funding opportunities, including Regional Impact Grants, Environment and Animal Welfare Grants and Women & Girls Fund Grants

Convenings, Continuing Education, and Professional Development Opportunities

We offer resources to nonprofits in our region to strengthen their overall capacity, serve the community more effectively, and collaborate more meaningfully. Learn more
