  • Ingrid J. Martland Fund

    Each year children entering Kindergarten in the Region 14 school district are gifted new books in a backpack. This generous fund was founded by Ingrid J. Martland in celebration of her lifelong love of reading.

    Ingrid J. Martland had a twenty-two year career at Mitchell Elementary School in Woodbury, where nearly all of her students excelled in math and vocabulary. Ingrid will be forever remembered for her annual donation of a new book to each Region 14 kindergarten student via the Woodbury Library and the Connecticut Community Foundation in perpetuity.
