Join us Thursday, December 8th from 12:30 – 1:00 PM for an in-person peer-to-peer lunch and learn led by Rob Fried, founder of Band Central. We will be meeting at Fairfield County’s Community Foundations’ Offices at 40 Richards Avenue, Norwalk, CT 06854. This program is free to attend, and lunch will be provided.


Rob Fried is a singer-songwriter, bassist, producer, philanthropist, radio talk show host and architect/founder of the successful live, themed concerts series Band Central. Founded in 2005, Band Central is a private philanthropic organization whose mission is to help local nonprofits in the Greater Connecticut area maximize their revenue potential. Band Central effectively accomplishes this in a multifaceted collaborative approach fueled by founder Rob Fried’s extensive investment background, robust local network, passion for music, and personal desire to “do good.” Band Central’s mission to combine philanthropy and music is reflected in its mantra to ‘show up, get down and do good’.

With over 15 years and 150 events under his belt working with local nonprofits at special event fundraising with Band Central, and over 30 years as a hedge fund executive at Bridgewater Associates, Rob Fried will share observations on the things nonprofits can do better to recharge their organizations in this program.
