what WE do

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


Help New Canaan beat Darien as the "Most Generous Town"! The 2nd annual competition starts at the Turkey Bowl and runs through Giving Tuesday. Text 06840 to 44321 or donate here between November 22nd and 27th to support New Canaan!

Stop by Gates between 6 and 8pm on Giving Tuesday, November 27th for our annual guest bartending event. 100% of proceeds will go to the "Most Generous Town" competition! Come out to enjoy cocktails and appetizers and help New Canaan take the title from Darien!

What's Happening

November 2018

Despite the winter weather our annual Volunteer Recognition Awards filled the room as we honored local volunteers who dedicate their time and talent to local nonprofit organizations, and help make New Canaan the unique, caring community we are proud to call home. What an inspirational night!
