Giving Strategies

Timing is everything in performance, and in charitable giving.

Whatever your charitable goals, we can help.

Contact Sharon at 203-777-7071. We’re ready when you are.

Developing your charitable giving plan is a very personal undertaking. It starts by asking yourself questions such as... What causes inspire me? What problems do I want to help solve? How much I can afford to give today and over time? What do I want to be remembered for?

At The Community Foundation, we offer a range of giving solutions that allow you to answer these questions. With the support of our professional staff, you can create the giving plan that:

  • Impacts the causes and issues that inspire you
  • Identifies ways to give today and through your estate
  • Incorporates the recommendations of your tax and financial advisors
  • Creates funds that can grow in value

Charitable Giving Your Way

Find the charitable solution that's right for you

Charitable giving can take many forms. That’s because people have different goals and objectives. And for many, it's a life event that brings their philanthropy into focus.
