Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation's Northwest Corner Fund, in partnership with Northwest Connecticut Community Foundation, awarded more than $23,000 to nine organizations in northwest Litchfield County for general operating and programming support. 

The partnership between these organizations began last year, when Berkshire Taconic and the Northwest Corner Fund launched an emergency response fund to deploy flexible resources to nonprofits and trusted social service providers working with residents impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. Our fund distributed nearly $80,000 to vital organizations in 2020, and Northwest Connecticut Community Foundation matched each dollar. 

As the focus shifts from emergency response to recovery, this round of spring grants will help established nonprofits continue to achieve their missions and plan for the future.
