®® is an online, searchable database of nonprofits serving Greater New Haven and the Lower Naugatuck Valley that was launched in 2010 by The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven. The site has several goals: to increase the amount of giving to local nonprofit organizations and strengthen the nonprofit sector in the region by increasing visibility and transparency.

Visit® to research a local nonprofit, learn about the issues and opportunities facing Greater New Haven that local nonprofits address or to make a gift online.® was the first of its kind to provide comprehensive profiles of area nonprofits  on a single site along with a capability for donors to make gifts.  The profiles contain information from several sources and are searchable by name, geography or interest area.
