All Together. Now and always.
Welcome to the Hartford Business Journal's Giving Guide for 2016. All of us at HBJ who have worked on the Giving Guide do so in the singular hope that you, as a reader and member of our community, find it truly useful.
Community is at the heart of the Giving Guide, and the publication is very near the hearts of many of us at the Hartford Business Journal. It is intended, as the name states, as a guide. It's a guide to the many nonprofit and charitable organizations that work so tirelessly throughout the year to provide for, and to serve, our community with compassion, and with pragmatism. The essence of community is the notion that we are all on the same journey, and that what is good for any of us is good for all of us.
We are all aware, and have been for some time, that community matters more deeply to more of us than ever before. Companies realize they must give back to the communities that support them, and they want to, because engagement in the community, and a sense of higher mission and purpose, is a strong motivator for our teams. While this is all good news, many community challenges still exist, and the job is never finished.
However we choose to deploy our dollars and our time, giving is good business. We hope that as you consider your giving program, and the causes that you and your staffs might want to support, that this year's Giving Guide will inform your decisions, and give you needed insight into the mission and operations of some of the preeminent nonprofit and community organizations in our region.
On behalf of all of us at the Hartford Business Journal, and our sponsors and partners who have helped create this year's Giving Guide, as well as the many fine organizations featured in these pages, thank you, and happy holidays.
