Challenge Grant Announced for Men & Boys' Fund at MSCF

UPDATE October 1, 2022: The Challenge was achieved! Thank you to everyone who donated! The goal was not only met but exceeded - a total of $7,580 was raised. We are so grateful.

Following an inspiring 5th Year Anniversary Celebration on June 9th, the Men & Boys’ Fund at Main Street Community Foundation received a fundraising challenge to further build the endowment. An anonymous donor has offered to match every dollar donated up to $5,000 between the event and September 30.


But we need your help. We are asking for your support to meet this goal and improve the lives of men and boys in Bristol, Burlington, Plainville, Plymouth, Southington and Wolcott in a substantial and lasting way.
The Men & Boys’ Fund has awarded $36,200 in grants over the last five years that have helped bring much needed resources to local nonprofits that are meeting the unique needs of men and boys. Workforce development. Camperships for boys. Workshops for fathers. Life skills classes for teenage boys. The impact has been great, but growing the endowment will ensure that support for these issues will not only continue but grow – forever. Help us reach this fundraising challenge!
