Grants & Scholarships

Connecticut Community Foundation works to connect nonprofits and students in Greater Waterbury and the Litchfield Hills to the resources that are made possible by our generous donors and partner funders. 

In 2015, the Foundation awarded more than $4 million grants to nonprofit organizations, scholarships to area students, and gifts made to local nonprofits through the Give Local Greater Waterbury and Litchfield Hills online giving event. 

As the region's largest scholarship provider, the Foundation has helped students in Greater Waterbury and the Litchfield Hills achieve their dreams of attending college thanks to our over 130 scholarship funds that have been established by donors.

While much of this funding is awarded through donor advised and designated funds, the Foundation also provides competitive grants and scholarships, offers services to nonprofits, and engages residents through our community leadership efforts.
