As we near the end of 2019 I am writing to express why I think it is beneficial and important to support the New Canaan Community Foundation with a year-end gift.
Over the years I have volunteered for the New Canaan Community Foundation in different capacities and currently serve on its Events & Communications Committee.
The Community Foundation is a very well run organization with professional staff and active Board members and hundreds of volunteers.
The New Canaan Community Foundation supports most of our local non-profits including the New Canaan Land Trust, The New Canaan Library, ABC House, the New Canaan Nature Center, and the New Canaan YMCA, just to name a few of the organizations it assists by providing grants to many projects worthy of funding.
A gift to our local foundation truly supports our community in so many ways, including helping families with urgent needs.
During this holiday season I would like to encourage you to give to our local community foundation and thereby show your support of the community so many of us are grateful to call home.
