History


“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world, indeed it is the only thing that ever has.”

- Margaret Mead


In the town of New Fairfield, Connecticut a small group of citizens gathered and decided to help make good things happen for their community. Seeking for a way to help, the idea of a community foundation formed and was started in 1998.

Little did they know then that within a short 10 year span, they would accomplish more than half a million dollars in distributions. Little did they realize that when the community foundation was created it would open new avenues and possibilities which support the quality of life for so many in and outside of New Fairfield.

And so it goes, not only has the foundation done what it originally wanted to accomplished but now has opened the door to assist other communities, individuals, businesses and organizations in the Greater New Fairfield Area to create meaningful Ways of Giving.

Building on what has and continues to be wonderful venue for donors to make good decisions as to where, what and how to donate, we continue to help and support those who wish to make a difference in their community, Your Gift Your Way, through the creation of nonprofit funds.
