Local nonprofits benefit from Give Local

Connecticut Community Foundation, which serves the greater New Milford area, has announced the results of its third annual Give Local Greater Waterbury & Litchfield Hills.

More than 3,200 donors participated in the May 5-6 online giving campaign, contributing more than $660,000 to 157 participating nonprofits that serve the foundation's 21-town service area.

In addition to those gifts, nonprofits will share in more than $100,000 in bonus funds that will be divided among organizations in proportion to the funds they raised during Give Local.

Many nonprofits also won some of the more than $50,000 in cash prizes that were awarded throughout the event.

With online gifts, bonus funds and prizes combined, nearly $820,000 was raised for area nonprofits.
