Financial Overview

The Main Street Community Foundation understands and accepts its role in the community as a vehicle for citizens and organizations in Bristol, Burlington, Plainville, Plymouth, Southington and Wolcott to fulfill their charitable objectives.

At the same time, the Foundation is committed to maintaining a focus on the perpetuity of its funds and our responsibility for providing a stable source of funding to projects, programs, and organizations in the Foundation’s service area. Administered prudently and thoughtfully, endowments will continue to provide support for as long as needed. All financial policies instituted by the Foundation are cornerstones of that prudent stewardship.
