4-CT was created to help Connecticut address and recover from the devastating impact of the COVID-19 virus. At 4-CT our work is to raise funds and deliver relief to those disproportionately affected by COVID-19. There can be neither justice nor dignity without having enough food to eat, safe shelter and other basic needs met.Read Full Statement
We’re working together with the Community Foundations of the State of Connecticut to get funds into the hands of those who need help the most: childcare for first responders, food banks, and more; those already in need before this crisis began.
40% of Americans cannot come up with $400 in a crisis. COVID-19 IS THAT CRISIS.
We're an independent non-profit entity, staffed mostly by volunteers, that enables actionable, fundable projects in order to give the community a powerful new way to help support our state’s COVID-19 response.
We unite projects with corporate, foundation, and individual donors for funding and execution.
We collect, develop, and adapt projects throughout the state, and prioritize them for greatest impact.
We provide ongoing support as projects are executed, ensuring transparency and accountability.
Supporting Connecticut's most vulnerable, COVID-19 impacted communities and families excluded from existing federal relief programs by providing them with direct, one-time payments. The program will engage trusted community-based organizations, who will provide eligible recipients with pre-paid debit cards to help pay for expenses like food and clothing. 4-CT has partnered with community health centers to distribute this assistance, creating an additional benefit where individuals receiving the prepaid cards can be offered health services (including COVID testing) they might otherwise not receive.
Maintaining the supply of health workers is critical to providing care to COVID-19 patients, but childcare is making it a challenge for these professionals to be available. That’s why 4-CT is ensuring health workers have the childcare support they need to do their jobs.
Many want to help by donating resources, time, and money, but lack a comprehensive view of response efforts and opportunities to help. Whether corporations, foundations, or private funders, 4-CT helps provide the clarity and connections needed for you to get involved.
"During this unprecedented public health crisis, we have seen incredible courage and acts of generosity by countless members of our community. 4-CT is a never –before –seen coordinated effort to link philanthropists, donors, and community foundations to the needs of our residents, as we all work together to get through this COVID-19 pandemic. We will get through this together, and 4-CT will act as a vital tool to help provide much needed outside investment to keep our programs and services stable during this tenuous time."
100% of your contribution will go to non-profit service providers.
