STAMFORD, CT - First County Bank Foundation is pleased to announce it recently awarded Greenwich-based nonprofit groups a total of $31,427 in grants to support these organizations with their mission to provide needed services in our local communities. First County Bank Foundation has awarded individual grants worth over $8.5 million since its inception in 2001.

“First County Bank Foundation is proud to support community-based nonprofit groups which supply essential services such as food, shelter and educational programs to those in the communities they serve,” said Reyno A. Giallongo, Jr., president of First County Bank Foundation. “It’s exciting to be part of an organization which works to help these local nonprofits ensure basic needs are met.”

The following Greenwich-based nonprofit organizations received First County Bank Foundation grants in 2018: Jewish Family Services of Greenwich for supermarketing for seniors; YMCA of Greenwich for Early Learning Center Snack Program; Abilis, Inc. for shower modifications for the disabled; Hill House, Inc. for low-income senior congregate living; United Way of Greenwich, CT for general needs; Kids in Crisis, Inc. for Safe Haven for Kids; and River House Adult Day Center for their Caregiver Information Center.

To be eligible for First County Bank Foundation grants, organizations must have nonprofit tax exempt status under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code; be located in Stamford, Darien, Greenwich, New Canaan, Norwalk, Westport or Fairfield; have community support; address community needs; have measurable outcomes; and demonstrate fiscal and administrative responsibility. Special consideration is given to those agencies or programs benefiting low to moderate income populations.
