Your Philanthropy - Increasing Giving - The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven

Giving your way, now and forever

Imagine the possibilities!

Whether you’re 26 or 62, you may have questions about how to strengthen your community and what it means to be called “a philanthropist”.  And when we say philanthropist, we don’t attach a dollar amount—we focus on your inspiration to build a better future for our region.

Asking yourself questions such as—Where do I see myself today? What opportunities do I want to seize? What problems do I want to help reduce or solve? What do I want to be remembered for?—may lead you to discover some new answers or reinforce what you already knew about yourself.

Here at The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven, we appreciate philanthropists of all levels and at all stages in their lives. We pride ourselves in offering options and services appropriate for where you are today in your giving, as well as where you are looking to be tomorrow.
