Current Needs Prompt Donors to Give Now
Two women whose endowed funds have distributed grants for years decide to tackle needs now; two private foundations make first-time grants to the Greater New Haven COVID-19 Community Fund
With the challenges of current times, donor giving to address current needs is increasing.
Two women whose endowed funds have distributed grants for years decided to tackle needs now. Ruth Grannick’s gift was used for the healing in the arts program and to support arts organizations through the responsive grants process. Cynthia Parker’s gift was used to support Havenly Treats and Elena’s Light, organizations supporting refugee and immigrant women.
Additionally, two private foundations with local roots made first-time grants of nearly $300,000 to the Greater New Haven COVID-19 Community Fund.
