The Community Chest of New Britain and Berlin granted a total of over $240,000 in grants to local nonprofits in 2020.
In 1981, the local community chest merged with the community council to form United Community Services, later renamed the United Way of New Britain and Berlin. In 1986, the organization affiliated with the United Way of the Capital Area, Hartford.
The community chest name was reclaimed in 2009 when it joined with the Community Foundation of Greater New Britain as a supporting organization. This affiliation preserves the chest’s independence, protects its endowment and assures that its work supporting important health and human services in New Britain and Berlin will continue for generations to come.
In total, the Community Chest of New Britain and Berlin granted $240,854 to nonprofits serving New Britain and Berlin in 2020. The CCNBB supports programs in the health and human services area and will consider requests for program grants, general operating support and seed grants for new programs. The next grant application deadline is April 15. Questions regarding the application process should be directed to Candice Tabone: 860-229-6018 ext. 300, firstname.lastname@example.org.
