what WE do

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


Our Sidewalk Sale booth drew in a crowd with symphony music, native/cultural instruments to play, a beautiful Ballerina tutu, a touch tank, arts & crafts and a baby goat!  Thank you to all who stopped by to visit!

Over $668,000 in grants were made to 73 local nonprofits through our main grant cycle - our Young Philanthropists granted $12,000 to 9 organizations & our scholarship program awarded $181,000 to college-bound New Canaan students.
