The Appel-Eitzer Family Fund

Est. 2020 by Elizabeth Appel and Brian Eitzer.

After living and working in the Greater New Haven area for over three decades, both Liz Appel and Brian Eitzer felt that they were in a stage in their lives where they were finally able to help others, and give back to the community that has given them so much.

Choosing to establish a fund at The Community Foundation seemed like a perfect fit. The couple have confidence in The Foundation because they know people who also have funds there. In addition, they know The Community Foundation supports a mix of different charities and causes, from museums to basic needs providers, to the environment, the arts and more.

Through the Appel-Eitzer Fund, Liz and Brian hope to help others in their community rise up. They also want grants from their Fund to address the most pressing needs and opportunities of the moment.

“We don’t view our fund as a legacy for ourselves, but rather a tool for creating success within the community right now.”
