what WE do

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


The Foundation's main cycle grant review is under way with over 100 residents helping review and vet 90 applications for funding. Volunteers and Board will conduct site visits in March and final funding decisions will be made in May.

Over 100 members of the community gathered to honor this year's Volunteer Recognition Awards recipients who dedicate their time and talent to help make New Canaan the unique, caring community we are proud to call home.
