Services Uninterrupted for Families Thru Timely Grant

Community Foundation expedites grant to allow the Boys & Girls Club to continue all its existing programs without interruption.

The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven is pleased to announced it has awarded $125,000 grant through its Responsive Grant process to the Boys & Girls Club of New Haven. The general operating support will enable the Club to provide uninterrupted after-school services for hundreds of New Haven families. The grant comes at a critical time for the Club, which had announced it was on the cusp of suspending its services.

"Fortunately, The Community Foundation's regular Board meeting took place yesterday so we were able to vote and expedite payment so that the Club could remain open and can continue to provide afterschool services through its programs in its facilities," says Christina Ciociola, Senior Vice President for Grantmaking and Strategy at The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven. "The Club's application was submitted months ago through our competitive Responsive Grant process. The Community Foundation awarded the Boys & Girls Club of Greater New Haven with a three year grant of $125,000. The Club received the first year's distribution of $75,000 today. We are committed to working with the Club on plans for the future and its critical services to the hundreds of families in our community that benefit from the program."
