Philanthropy, your way
We will work one-on-one to help you meet your philanthropic goals, enjoy tax benefits, and maximize your impact. Contact us today, and start exploring options for charitable giving in Fairfield County and beyond.
You can make a difference for our region’s people and places by supporting initiatives to close Fairfield County’s opportunity gap. Your gift to our Community Impact fund will fuel research-based, collaborative solutions to issues that are too complex for any single organization to tackle alone.
From Donor Advised Funds to scholarship funds and more, starting your own fund at Fairfield County’s Community Foundation makes charitable giving impactful, easy and meaningful. We handle all the vetting of nonprofit organizations, grant processing and paperwork, so you can focus on making a difference.
Establish a charitable trust or make a bequest or beneficiary designation to the Community Foundation, and join a group of visionary philanthropists who are creating lasting change. Your planned gift will directly impact the lives of future generations.
Increase your impact by donating non-cash gifts, such as stocks, bonds, real estate, life insurance policies, retirement and plan assets, and certain other assets. Deductions may apply that benefit your tax situation and increase the value of your gift – please consult with your financial and legal advisors. Contact us today to learn more.
By converting a private foundation to a Donor Advised Fund at the Community Foundation, you can continue to give to qualified public charities while freeing yourself from fiscal management and paperwork. Family members can be named as advisors and successors.
Make your corporate philanthropy go further in Fairfield County. We work with companies of all sizes who share our values and commitment to the community.
