Letter: New Canaan Community Foundation Receiving Grant Applications


Dear Editor,

The New Canaan Community Foundation currently has funding opportunities available for local nonprofit organizations. We want to ensure that potential partners know we are here, and listening to the interests and needs of our community. 

For over 40 years, we’ve invested in programs, capital projects, and the operations and growth of critical local organizations. These organizations span arts & culture; health; human services; seniors & special needs; youth & education—they’re the lifeblood of our community, and we are so fortunate to invest and partner in their work. 

We mobilize thoughtful grant investments, supported by many families across town, chipping in their charitable giving to have a greater impact together. Last year, our generous supporters helped us invest nearly $600,000 in local nonprofits. So that we can continue to strategically respond to local needs, we hope you’ll share our open funding opportunity with worthwhile nonprofit projects and start-up ideas. Information on how to apply can be found at www.newcanaancf.org, and applications must be submitted by Friday, October 4th.

Thank you for partnering with us to support both individual and local challenges, enriching the lives of all community members.


Lauren Patterson
President & CEO
New Canaan Community Foundation
