The Community Fund for Women & Girls is dedicated to improving the quality of life for women and girls in our region, through information, education, advocacy and - most importantly - by encouraging women's philanthropy.
The Community Fund for Women & Girls is dedicated to forging a path for women and girls to speak for themselves as well as for those who have no voice. As part of this commitment, the Fund regularly holds convenings and events, inviting inspirational women to Greater New Haven to impart their knowledge and giving local advocates a chance to meet and discuss regional, national and global issues affecting us all.
