The Foundation offers responsive grants throughout the year, ranging in size from small grants and sponsorships to larger multi-year commitments. This flexible funding comes from unrestricted and preference funds established to respond to community needs in Greater New Haven.
Our 2021 Grantseeker Webinar provides an overview of responsive grants offerings opening for the year.
