Northwest Corner Gives
Northwest Corner Gives is NCCF’s crowdfunding program created to help build awareness and raise matching funds for expenses.
Northwest Corner Gives, a cornerstone initiative of the Northwest CT Community Foundation, has been a catalyst for community transformation since its inception in 2020. Born as a rapid response to the Covid-19 pandemic, the program raised an impressive $635,280 in immediate relief grants for 53 local nonprofits in its first year.
In 2022, 33 local nonprofits raised $435,820 through Northwest Corner Gives for programs including emergency housing and food services, after-school programs, childcare, animal care, mental and healthcare, and arts programs.
