what WE do

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


The Foundation's 2017 annual report highlighting 40 years serving our community has mailed to our donors as part of our annual appeal. Click here to view »

Over 100 members of the community gathered to honor this year's Volunteer Recognition Awards recipients who dedicate their time and talent to help make New Canaan the unique, caring community we are proud to call home.

What's Happening

December 2017

Our annual appeal is underway and in honor of our 40th anniversary, a group of anonymous donors is offering a $107,500 challenge match to the community. They will match, dollar for dollar, new and increased unrestricted gifts. With your help, we can turn this generous challenge into $215,000 more for the nonprofits serving our community.
