what WE do

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


We congratulate Cynthia Gorey on her new position as Director of Development at the Fairfield Country Day School.  In her 14 year tenure she has built NCCF into a model of a professionally run community foundation.  

Enjoy a summer evening of live music on the Waveny lawn on June 29th when the Foundation sponsors the performance of country western band Gunsmoke as part of the Summer Concert Series.
