HARTFORD — In recognition of its 35th anniversary, and to ensure continued support for its work, Leadership Greater Hartford has established an endowment fund at the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving.
Grants from the fund will be used by Leadership Greater Hartford to support its mission to develop, connect and inspire diverse leaders to build strong and vibrant communities throughout Greater Hartford.
This is accomplished through programs that provide experiential learning through workshops, tours and hands-on team projects. Leadership Greater Hartford brings together and trains a diverse array of community-minded individuals, representing all ages, socioeconomic levels, home towns, and occupations.
“The endowment fund will ensure that Leadership Greater Hartford is able to sustain our 35-year history of building leaders while building community,” said Leadership Greater Hartford President Ted Carroll.
LGH provides a forum for leaders from different sectors and experiences to undertake collaborative endeavors and then supports them as they assume community leadership roles. The year-long program is now known as Quest, and is but one of many Leadership Greater Hartford’s leadership training programs designed for people at various points in their personal and professional lives, from teens to executives to those in their retirement years.
Nancy Bernstein of West Hartford is serving as the establishing donor of this new endowment. Bernstein has served on Leadership Greater Hartford’s Board of Directors, currently serves on its Legacy Advisors committee.
