what WE do

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


On April 24th the Foundation will host our annual Spring Luncheon. This year's event supports the Spirit of New Canaan fund honoring outstanding and inspirational community members.

The Foundation's main cycle grant review is under way with over 100 volunteers reviewing 92 applications for funding. Board-led site visits are taking place in March and final funding decisions will be made in May.
