NCHS interns, Melissa Calabro and Lauren Peet, created an outstanding video about the Foundation as their internship project.  Watch the video and see all the hard work put into creating it - they even composed the music!

What's Happening

Volunteer Recognition

Continuing a tradition begun by the Volunteer Center in 1998, the Community Foundation is proud to revitalize the recognition of volunteers within our community and launch a new initiative. We are pleased to acknowledge volunteer efforts by New Canaan residents, including honoring “unsung” heroes who have not been recognized for their efforts. Click here for the form.
