Community Foundation of Eastern Connecticut: Neighbors to Neighbors Fund Fund

About This Fund

The Community Foundation of Eastern Connecticut created the Neighbors for Neighbors Fund (The Fund) in response to the coronavirus pandemic. The Fund is jointly administered with the United Ways of Southeastern Connecticut and Central and Northeastern Connecticut to address critical gaps in services during this time.

The Fund is designed to be flexible and nimble in supporting the work of nonprofits and others in meeting the basic needs of residents of Eastern Connecticut. It is intended to complement federal, state and municipal government relief efforts to identify and fill gaps, and to expand local capacity to address all aspects of the outbreak as effectively and efficiently as possible.

The fund’s resources initially will be directed to organizations providing direct assistance to high need populations — including low-income individuals, residents without health insurance and/or access to sick days, communities of color, and individuals with disabilities, among others — to address immediate basic needs such as healthcare, food, shelter, childcare and other supports to ensure stability and well-being.
