what WE do

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


Almost 150 nonprofit partners and Foundation volunteers gathered at our grant awards event as we distributed over $670K to 72 local organizations. See our full list of Spring grants here.

Our Spring Luncheon was a huge success raising $80K for our Touch A Life fund! A full house gathered to hear the heartfelt and inspiring words of author Annette Ross and to recognize the New Canaan Department of Human Services.
