United by a desire to build a stronger community, people from a wide variety of backgrounds and committed to a wide variety of local causes have shaped their giving by answering for themselves one fundamental question:
We visited the town greens in Guilford, Milford and New Haven, and spoke to sun-seekers on the West Haven boardwalk and pizza-seekers in Wooster Square. We talked to patrons at Miller Library in Hamden and hikers on the Derby Riverwalk. We posed our one question to many. People spoke about the arts and culture of the region. Education was a dominant theme, with students speaking of their teachers and teachers of their students. People spoke of the talents of our youth and of the engagement of our citizenry. And the inspiring work of our local nonprofits was a recurrent theme as well. Hear what people are saying about Greater New Haven in the video below.
