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!

On May 23rd the Foundation awarded $650K to 80 local nonprofits serving a range of needs from health and human services, to arts and culture, to youth programs. The awards represent the conclusion to months of dedication of over 100 community volunteers.
