The Great Give® 2015

On May 5 and 6, friends of The Connection can help us raise much-needed matching grant funding — from the Community Foundation for Greater New Haven and Valley Community Foundation — by making a donation to The Connection during a 36-hour period beginning Tuesday, May 5 at 8:00 a.m. through Wednesday, May 6 at 8:00 p.m.

The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven and Alexion Pharmaceuticals Inc. are providing a matching pool of $50,000. All donations made during the 36-hour period of The Great Give® 2015 to qualified nonprofits will receive a prorated portion of the match pool. (For example, if the match pool is $50,000 and the total amount raised that day is $350,000, then a one dollar donation would become one dollar and fourteen cents.)

Matching grants from the Community Foundation for Greater New Haven will be applied to all donations.

The Great Give® 2015 is part of a national day of local giving celebrating the centennial anniversary of community foundations called Give Local America. We join more than 100 communities in this national day of giving to support local nonprofits. Give Local America is a network of hundreds of local giving events coordinated on a national scale.

We hope that friends of The Connection will give generously during this period. The unrestricted funds raised through the Great Give® will allow The Connection to meet special client and program needs that are not supported by traditional funding sources. Every dollar can make all the difference. We urge you to mark your calendars for The Great Give® 2015 and make your donations go even further.

  1. I sit on the board of a Bridgeport based non-profit that has a food pantry, community supper, esl class and a project learn after school program. Our programs have a director but are volunteer run. Would love to know if there is a way to participate in your program.
    I can be reached at 203-988-4378 or you can email an details you have.
    Thank you for the consideration!

    1. Thank you for reaching out to us! I will have someone from our Bridgeport office contact you soon.
