Community Foundation Announces Promotion

Tuesday, September 15, 2020

NEW BRITAIN, CT -- The Community Foundation of Greater New Britain (CFGNB) has promoted Candice Tabone to Program Manager.

Tabone graduated from Central Connecticut State University where she majored in Psychology and minored in Community Engagement. Before joining the Foundation, Candice worked in the Dean’s Office for the Carol A. Ammon College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences and also interned with Prudence Crandall Center on Burritt Street, New Britain.

Candice has been with the Foundation since January 2019 and excelled in her role as Office Manager, overseeing all office operations and aiding the Foundation in fulfilling its mission. As Program Manager, she will be managing the Scholarship Program as well as the grants program for the Foundation’s supporting organization, The Community Chest of New Britain and Berlin.

“Following her excellent education and training at CCSU, Candice quickly became very comfortable with Foundation operations and soon exhibited the skills and qualities it takes to excel in our organization. I’m sure her work as an intern at the Prudence Crandall Center in her last semester of college was key to her realizing how fulfilling a career assisting those in need within the Greater New Britain community could be and we’re grateful to now have her managing several of our programs,” said David Obedzinski, Foundation President. “I know for a fact that the meaningful relationships she’s quickly developed with our scholarship donors, local school guidance staff, and students who benefit from the educational support has helped our program continue to grow in the communities we serve as is evidenced by the record $262,980 in scholarships awarded so far this year.”
