The Connection Centennial Campaign: The Foundation of Our Future

The way our community has utilized The Connection to socialize, connect, and work both inside and outside the building has changed drastically since the COVID-19 pandemic. While programs have responded to changing needs, immediate investments must now be made in capital improvements to provide proper amenities.

These capital projects will help us fully realize our mission, which has never been more pressing than during the third year of a global pandemic where individuals and families have continued to face social and racial unrest, detachment, and polarization. Despite the challenges posed in the recent years, we remain unwavering in our commitment to support the physical, emotional, and mental wellness of youth and adults.

    • Improving indoor & outdoor play spaces for children: installing modern and sensory-friendly, accessible structures in two outdoor areas, and engaging learning panels in three indoor common areas.


    • Refreshing indoor spaces to support the new ways our community engages since the pandemic_providing adequate areas for parents and caregivers to work remotely, for children to study, for ESL classes to meet, and for all to socialize & connect.


The next phase of our campaign presents us with an exciting opportunity: The Reeves Foundation of Summit offered to make a $150,000 grant if we raised $450,000 in new gifts and pledges for capital improvements. Given the broad scale of these projects, we are asking you to thoughtfully consider an increased annual contribution made today, or payable over 2 years.

We hope you will join us in investing in The Connection’s future, helping us to meet this match—and making connection possible for everyone.
