what WE do

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


NCCF's main grants cycle is in the home stretch!  Our 100 volunteers evaluated grant applications and conducted site visits to 80 local nonprofit organizations. Funding decisions will be finalized in early May and grant checks presented at our Grant Award Coffee on May 23rd.  

Our Young Philanthropists are busy reviewing 35 grant applications focused on education & human services for low income individuals and will decide in April how to allocate their grant budget of $20,000.

what's happening

Spring 2017

Our Touch A Life Luncheon was a huge success with a full house who joined the Foundation to hear the heartfelt and inspiring words of our speaker Annette Ross and to recognize the New Canaan Department of Human Services. Thank you to all who came to support our efforts to make a difference in our special community!
