The Get Outdoors and Enjoy Nature Fund is a designated fund established for the benefit of Massaro Community Farm, to support its outdoor education and trail maintenance initiatives.
"My hope is that particular attention can be given to elementary school-aged children who do not have the opportunity to be exposed to the wonders and joys of the outdoors," says fund founder Louisa Cunningham. Louisa serves as vice-president of the board at Masaro Community Farm and is the financial manager at the Yale Art Gallery.
The goal over time, says Louisa, is to help children become comfortable, interested, attached, and invested in caring for the environment.
Louisa also wishes that The Massaro Nature Trail can be regularly and properly maintained for the enjoyment and education of its users.
Setting up a permanent endowment at The Community Foundation ensures that Lisa's commitment to land conservation and outdoor education will endure for future generations. Per her wishes, if the Massaro Community Farm ceases to exist or provide such programming, the Get Outdoors and Enjoy Nature Fund will become a preference fund to support outdoor education programming in Woodbridge and the Naugatuck Valley.
