Giving Guide: Business Gives Back

2018 Giving Guide Welcome Message

Welcome to the 9th annual Giving Guide: Business Gives Back. We have compiled this compendium to inform and connect businesses with nonprofit organizations that are aligned with what they care about. Each nonprofit profile provides a crisp snapshot of the organization's mission, goals, area of service, giving and volunteer opportunities and board leadership. You'll find out about upcoming events and read about the companies that are sponsoring them.

The Nonprofit Directory provides contact information for hundreds of nonprofit groups throughout the region.

Year-round access to the digital edition of the 2018 Giving Guide is available at:

All of us at the Hartford Business Journal are proud to be a part of such a caring and generous business community that gives back every day.

Our commitment to giving back is to provide a voice for 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. And to tell the stories of the unique and powerful partnerships and collaborations that are being forged for the greater good.

While the Giving Guide is a primary vehicle in which we inform our readers regarding nonprofit and charitable activities, our community engagement doesn't stop there. Every other week, HBJ's Nonprofit Notebook highlights the news and newsmakers making a difference throughout the region, as well as in several nonprofit, editorial-focused issues. You can read all about them in print and at

To further our engagement, we are very honored to bring businesses and nonprofit organizations together at our first annual Community Excellence and Nonprofit Awards on Nov.14th. The award identifies outstanding companies, leaders and volunteers who have supported nonprofit organizations, along with nonprofits and nonprofit executives who have made a significant impact on the community over the past year.

Let their stories inspire you to give of yourself to better your community.

On behalf of all of us at the Hartford Business Journal, our sponsors and partners who have helped create this year's Giving Guide, as well as the many fine organizations featured in these pages, we leave you with this thought:

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

And it's happening right here, everyday.
