Education & services for Fairfield County nonprofits.
We collaborate with partner organizations to offer no-cost or low cost education and resources to help nonprofits based in Fairfield County learn how to thrive.
Trainings & Workshops
Our high-quality, affordable workshops help nonprofit organizations to increase efficiencies, fundraise, better engage board members and empower staff to achieve greater impact.
Through this peer learning program, Executive Directors can come together to collaborate, exchange best practices and explore ways to develop skills and deliver impact.
Board Chair Roundtables
Quarterly roundtables support board chairs and offer a forum to share practical experience, connect with peers and take away real-time information to help guide their organizations.
We host legislative forums that connect nonprofit leaders and elected officials, so they can partner to address key issues and priorities.
Nonprofit Endowment Funds
By establishing a permanent endowment fund at Fairfield County’s Community Foundation, nonprofits can ensure future stability while outsourcing administrative responsibilities.
We offer two conference rooms for use by nonprofits, with free meeting space for up to 24 people at our Norwalk office at Exit 40A on the Merritt Parkway.
Our Fundraiser Event Scheduling Calendar allows you to see what other nonprofits are doing to fundraise, and to pick event dates that do not conflict with other Fairfield County fundraising events.
Access research commissioned through Fairfield County’s Community Foundation on challenges facing our communities, from food insecurity to nonprofit governance and more.
Social Venture Partners
Social Venture Partners (SVP) is a global network of local donors who seek to improve their community. Learn how its work complements our Center for Nonprofit Excellence.
“The structure of the Board Chair Roundtables helps to get buy-in from board members, and helps them to understand their responsibilities to tell the organization’s story and raise funds. It also offers a stimulating intellectual environment, and networking opportunities. Several times, our Board Chair has met people to partner with to develop new programs.”
