Brooks, Todd & McNeil and our employees are actively involved in the community dedicating both time and resources to many noteworthy organizations in and around the towns of Torrington, South Windsor and Enfield.

We are a primary sponsor along with Litchfield Bancorp and Northwest Community Bank of “Golf for Good Causes,” an annual charity golf tournament which raises funds to benefit local charities that provide for basic necessities of food, shelter and protection from domestic violence for the people of Northwestern Connecticut. This event has raised $450,000 over the last eighteen years for five local charities; Susan B. Anthony Project, FISH of Northwestern Connecticut, McCall Center for Behavioral Health (an alcohol and opioid recovery center), The Community Kitchen of Torrington, and the Open Door of Winsted.

Brooks, Todd & McNeil has also been an avid supporter of the YMCA over the years and its mission to strengthen community and support our youth. Our CEO, Stephen Todd received the Legacy Award distinction for raising well over $100,000 to help support the YMCA and its charitable programs and objectives.

Below is a list of many of the organizations with which we work across the state.

Community Charity Committee

Brooks, Todd, & McNeil and its employees have always been passionate about giving back to their communities and have historically run many internal charity efforts to help others.  Food drives, coat drives, fundraising walks, sponsorship of a child, supplies for deployed soldiers, and annual United Way and Susan B. Anthony company campaigns.  This year in 2018, Brooks, Todd, & McNeil formally established its Community Charity Committee, an employee driven committee dedicated to organizing, promoting, and enacting charitable campaigns for Non-profit groups in our community, our state, and our nation.  The committee is comprised of employees from all departments of the agency, pooling their time, talents, and resources to maximize positive impact with their efforts.

Successful drives in 2018 include “Suits for Soldiers” in February, filling the pet food section at the Hands for Grace pantry in April, and raising funds and awareness for breast cancer with a BTM team in the Susan G. Komen “More than Pink” walk.  Further plans for 2018 are a Restaurant fundraiser for TRED (Transportation Reaching Every Direction) in the Northwest Corner, a Fundraiser for ECAD (Educated Canines Assisting with Disabilities), and our annual Holiday gift purchase for families under the care of the Susan B. Anthony Foundation.  Each year, the committee will collaborate and select 6 different campaigns to promote in order to reach a wide variety of needs.

The Committee regularly shares its fundraisers and events with the public to encourage community participation and also in the hopes to inspire other grass roots efforts in our community and beyond!  The best way to see how BTM is endeavoring to make an impact is to follow us on Facebook (link to, where you can learn how to get involved and view the results of each campaign.

Brooks, Todd, & McNeil’s historical focus on volunteerism has also expanded in 2018 with up to 8 paid hours for each employee to take time to volunteer individually towards any non-profit effort they would like to support with their time!  Employees are encouraged to “pick their passion” and offer their time and talent to any charitable organization that they feel so moved to support.

While a longtime proponent and advocate of giving back, Brooks, Todd & McNeil has made great strides in 2018 to organize and formally support our staff to make an even bigger difference!
