what WE do

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


The Spirit of New Canaan was in full bloom at our spring luncheon honoring Meg Domino, Kathie & Leo Karl, Jr., Chris Schipper and founder, Tom McLane. These inspirational residents drew a huge crowd of over 400 who joined us to honor these truly remarkable individuals!

The Foundation's main cycle grant review is coming to a close. Over 100 volunteers reviewed 92 applications for funding. Board-led site visits took place in March and final funding decisions will be made in May.
