What We Do

Financial Support

2015 was an exciting year for us! Through the generosity of FOGY members, we have been able to provide financial support for:

  • GHS Safe Rides Program
  • Glastonbury Social Services Thanksgiving Baskets
  • Glastonbury Social Services Holiday Assistance Campaigns
  • Glastonbury town playscape equipment

FOGY provides direct support, usually in the form of donations, but may involve volunteer assistance with programs and events. FOGY attempts to provide support to the largest number of youth. Typically, FOGY donates to group projects but assistance may also be provided to individuals in need.

Examples of FOGY past contributions:

ABC House, Glastonbury, CT The ABC House

Everyone

We also recognize adult members of the community who have demonstrated excellence in assisting the youth of Glastonbury. Please click here to view the list of past recipients of the "FOGY of the Year" and "Distinguished Service Award" recipients>> 

Do you know someone who deserves recognition for his/her work with Glastonbury youth? FOGY of the Year is given to an individual who gives extraordinary volunteer service to the youth in our community, his/her service is not directly related to the his/her profession. The FOGY Service Award is given to those individuals whose profession may involve Glastonbury youth and who have demonstrated an enthusiasm and dedication, which is "above and beyond the call of duty."  Please download the nomination form below as a pdf file.
