what WE do

The Foundation serves as New Canaan's local partner for advice, leadership and charitable giving.


We are delighted to announce that New Canaan has won the title of “Most Generous Town” in its second annual competition with Darien. The two towns collectively raised more than $150,000 all of which will support local nonprofit organizations and their missions.

Thanks to all who joined us at Gates on Giving Tuesday. It was a fun night with guest bartenders Sharon Stevenson, Sharon McClymonds, Kevin Moynihan and Leo Karl taking care of everyone! Your support helped New Canaan win the "Most Generous Town" competition!
