If your charitable goal is to help our community at large, then we suggest you make an unrestricted contribution to NCCF. Unrestricted contributions are directed to NCCF's Community Impact Fund, which supports diverse programs and initiatives of non profit organizations that impact virtually all residents of New Canaan. With such a contribution, you will be making a commitment to the place you call home.
Since 1977, unrestricted contributions to NCCF's Community Impact Fund have built a significant community savings account. The Community Foundation awards grants from this Fund annually. Each year, approximately $250,000 in grants are awarded from this fund. As the Community Impact Fund grows, so will its capacity to respond to the changing and emerging needs in our area.
