Community Wishlist

If you would like to make a gift to make a difference - but aren't sure how - we can help!

Our Community Wish List is a collection of needs of nonprofits serving the towns of Bristol, Burlington, Plainville, Plymouth, Southington and Wolcott.

Main Street Community Foundation was fortunate to partner with students from Tunxis Community College involved in a VISTA service learning project to initiate this Wish List in 2012. Inspired by a previous project - the Connecticut Council for Philanthropy’s “Ways to Share…A Holiday Wish List” - the students gathered information from several organizations and added it to the already existing Wish List.

If you are a nonprofit organization that serves the residents of Bristol, Burlington, Plainville, Plymouth, Southington and/or Wolcott and would like to be included on the list, please contact us.

For donors with Advised Funds at the Foundation, contact Kate Kerchaert at 860.583.6363 or to recommend a grant from your Fund to fulfill all or part of a wish. If you don't have a Fund, you can make gifts directly to the nonprofit of your choice...just be sure to tell them that you saw it on the Wish List!
