By helping immigrants and their families, you are helping Fairfield County achieve success and strengthening our communities.
We must address the structural and cultural issues that contribute to disparities, particularly for Fairfield County’s immigrant population. By focusing on improving wellbeing, building capacity, and positioning immigrants to achieve success, we can help to close the opportunity gap.
Introducing our Immigrant Success Fund (ISF) Grant Program
The Community Foundation is proud to announce the inaugural grant program for the new Immigrant Success Fund. We are referring to ISF’s first grant program as “responsive grants.” The ISF responsive grant program will be open for applications on/around July 1, 2020, and will focus on three categories of grants: (1) critical needs; (2) capacity building; and (3) collaborative action plans.
What we do
Helping build capacity at the individual and community level, so that immigrants can self-identify goals and organize around community identified issues.
Grants to Support Immigrants
Prioritizing and scaling evidence-based needs through grantmaking. These priorities include legal services, English language learning, and health care.
Advocating for local and state policies, practices, and legislation to positively impact immigrants and their families.
Assembling multi-organizational services at crucial touch points.
When we empower immigrants and their families to succeed, we secure a more vibrant future for Fairfield County.
