Recognizing that 2008 will present a more difficult fund-raising climate, Community Foundation for GNH will increase its matching grant program (“Making a Good Gift Better”) for basic needs providers from $75,000 to $225,000. The Foundation will match all contributions to qualifying agencies, not just new and additional contributions as in prior years.
Nonprofits with operating budgets under $3 million that provide food, shelter, clothing, fuel or assistance with utility payments to residents of Greater New Haven are eligible to apply. Deadline for applications is 5 pm, Oct. 10, 2008.
