Letter: Support the New Canaan Community Foundation This Holiday Season


Dear Editor,

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. 


Christina Fagerstal
