A gift that inspires others to make an enduring impact

Oct 02, 2019

Leader. Fundholder. Ambassador. Of all the roles Mike Harris has played at Fairfield County’s Community Foundation, one of the most critical has been inspiring others to make planned gifts.

Mike, a retired Greenwich attorney who practiced for five decades in Trusts & Estates, has been an enduring presence since FCCF’s founding in 1992. Mike served as FCCF’s Board Chair and continues to support FCCF as a member of our Emeritus Board and Professional Advisors Council. Mike has dedicated countless hours to strategy, fundraising and building capacity for local nonprofits.

Now, Mike has taken his personal giving to the next level by joining FCCF’s Future Society and making a charitable bequest that will fuel grants in perpetuity. By sharing his story, he hopes others will also be inspired to explore options for planned giving at the Community Foundation.

“Helping people find ways to make an enduring impact in our community has always been at the heart of my work, and I appreciate that FCCF is one of the few organizations that considers Fairfield County as a whole. It’s deeply fulfilling to know my gift can both make a direct difference for coming generations and inspire others to give.”

As visionary philanthropists, your generous planned gifts are making an impact for future generations in our community. Thank you! Learn more at FCCFoundation.org/Future
