Aid Helps Nonprofits in Recovery from Pandemic-related Revenue Losses and Operating Challenges

New Haven, CT (August 5, 2021) – The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven has awarded $3,881,700 in one-year and multi-year grants to 72 local nonprofit organizations through its competitive responsive grants for 2021. The total dollar amount more than doubled the amount typically awarded through The Foundation's largest competitive grant program and was made possible by an unprecedented increase in spending from The Foundation’s endowment.

The increased resources were made possible by Stepping Forward, a three-year $26 Million commitment The Foundation launched in early 2021 to address the impact of COVID-19 and advance racial equity. Stepping Forward added $1,675,000 to this year’s competitive responsive grant program, which provides general operating support to nonprofits working in twenty towns of Greater New Haven.

“This is far beyond what we’ve done in the past. It reflects new spending and new priorities around racial equity and COVID recovery,” said The Community Foundation President and CEO Will Ginsberg. "Of all the things The Community Foundation is doing in response to challenges of today, none is more important than supporting the recovery of the local nonprofit sector."
