Support

Thanks to the generosity of hundreds of contributors, the program is having a positive impact by recognizing, honoring and supporting exceptional students with the potential to become outstanding teachers. Previous recipients are making a difference in classrooms in Connecticut and across the country.

Your support is important because the larger the endowment grows, the
more we can accomplish for deserving students.

HOW TO MAKE A DONATION:
You can make a tax-deductible contribution at the website of the Community Foundation of Greater New Britain, which administers the program. Go to www.cfgnb.org and choose the Alma Exley Scholarship Program from among the many programs listed.

Or you can send a check (made out to “CFGNB” and designated
for the Alma Exley Scholarship Program) to the following address:

Community Foundation of Greater New Britain
74A Vine Street
New Britain, CT 06052

If your place of employment has a matching gift program, you can increase your contribution by obtaining and submitting the appropriate form. The tax-exempt number (EIN) of the Community Foundation of Greater New Britain is 06-6036461.

To make a tax-deductible gift of stock, call the foundation at 860-229-6018.

You can also provide support by attending our annual reception at which we honor our newest recipient. Please join us as we recognize these high-potential students.
