The Darien Community Association will use a $25,400 grant from a state fund to modernize its office and nonprofit management systems, the organization announced Friday.
The CT Cultural Fund Operating Support Grant came from from CT Humanities (CTH).
The grants are meant to help organizations as they recover from the pandemic and maintain and grow their ability to serve their community and the public.
DCA Executive Director Amy Bell said the organization is “delighted” to receive the money. “As the DCA celebrates its 100th anniversary, we are committed to investing in technological upgrades that will enable the DCA to expand our outreach, grow participation in our programming and activities, and better serve the needs of our community.”
The Darien Community Association, at 274 Middlesex Road, was one of 723 organizations in the state receiving more than $8.5 million in grants.
The grants are part of a two-year, $30.7 million investment in arts, humanities, and cultural nonprofit organizations approved by the state Legislature and Gov. Ned Lamont.
