The New Canaan Community Foundation (NCCF) recently announced $635,299 in grant investments supporting a total of 78 nonprofit organizations in New Canaan and neighboring communities. The Foundation’s annual grant process distributes funds raised from donors across the community, who give at all different levels to pool their collective resources and make their community a better place. Together, with the Foundation’s other grantmaking programs, NCCF will invest more than $2.8 million in the community this year. Every year, NCCF’s grantmaking goal is to provide impactful funding for a range of programs serving the community. This spring’s 78 grants support five categories, in pursuit of the following results: • Human Services – Community members are able to meet their basic needs • Arts, Culture & Community Resources – Community members benefit from New Canaan’s cultural, recreational, and other community resources • Youth & Education – Youth have the academic, social, and financial support they need to succeed • Health – Community members have the information and access to services they need to stay healthy • Seniors & Special Needs – Older adults and persons with special needs achieve and maintain a high quality of life This year, the Foundation chose to place additional focus on several key areas – including COVID-19 response and, for the fourth year in a row, behavioral health.
