Greenwich’s nonprofits invited to First County Bank celebration of 2015 grants

After awarding $544,000 in grants to 88 local nonprofits in 2015, the First County Bank Foundation celebrated the awards with it’s seventh annual “Celebration of Mutual Partnerships.”

The celebration, which was held this past week at The Landing, 78 Southfield Ave., Stamford, was attended by the staff of many of the local nonprofits. Jon Simons, vice president of Donor by Design, gave the presentation “Please Stop Asking for Money—Unique Ways to Approach Fund Development.”

The foundation has awarded more than $7 million in grants since its inception in 2001.
