Help make a difference by supporting the Foundation!

Here at the Foundation, our vision is a New Canaan that comes together to address both individual and local challenges, enriching the lives of all community members. Giving to the 2021 Annual Appeal means supporting our community's arts, cultural, educational, special needs and senior services organizations. It also means addressing Covid-19's impact on our community by ensuring our neighbor's basic needs are met, and meeting the demand for increased behavioral health programming.
