To Our Greater New Haven Community:

Health officials recommend social distancing as a course of action to combat the spread of the COVID-19; social distancing is widely seen as the most effective means of slowing the spread and reducing the impact of COVID-19 among our employees, their families and the communities in which we all live.


The Community Foundation office at 70 Audubon Street in New Haven is closed until further notice to visitors; however, The Community Foundation is open (virtually) for business. What this means:

  • The staff of The Foundation are available to conduct business via email or by phone during normal business hours (8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.).
  • Our community is encouraged to contact staff members by email to conduct business during normal business hours. In cases where a staff member is not immediately available by phone, please leave a message and your message will be returned as soon as possible. Please note that due to the volume of inquiries, we encourage you to read the most up to date information on our webpage before contacting staff. See staff directory here.
  • To reach The Foundation's President & CEO, Will Ginsberg, please use email.
  • Please do not come to The Foundation's office at 70 Audubon Street in New Haven until further notice.

The Community Foundation will not hold events or host external meetings in person. All events are postponed until further notice.

The Community Foundation is gathering information about the impact of COVID-19 on our community's nonprofit sector and the people served by our nonprofit community. Please see our most recent news about the Greater New Haven COVID-19 Community Fund and other measures being taken to help our nonprofit sector and the people it serves.

The Foundation encourages our staff, donors, nonprofits and all members of our community to stay informed about COVID-19 and to practice safe habits. The CDC website is a good resource for both.

Thank you for your patience; as updates are known, we will communicate about them. Information will be shared via The Foundation's website (, email and social media channels. You may also call us at 203-777-7098 to hear a recorded message.
