what WE do

The Community Foundation is the most effective and efficient way to turn your compassion into action.

Featured at New Canaan

We will proudly honor Dr. Thomas Flynn, Kathy Giusti and Pat & Hud Stoddard for their tremendous compassion, dedication and community leadership at our Spirit of New Canaan luncheon on April 29th. RSVP today and help us celebrate these remarkable individuals.

It's the grant-making time of year again!  We received 76 proposals from local nonprofits, requesting over $1.1 million.  Our 100 volunteers help us review each request and decide where our donors' charitable dollars will have the most impact.
