Community Foundation For Greater New Haven


The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven — a philanthropic institution established in 1928 — funds the administrative costs of New Haven Promise and is supplying the foundational support for PromiseNet 2014.

For 86 years, thousands of donors have built the community endowment by establishing permanent funds or making gifts to existing funds that distribute grants to nonprofit organizations. These donors, past and present, make their gifts to ensure that programs and causes that matter most to them will be supported today and forever.

The Community Foundation is among the oldest and largest of more than 700 community foundations in the United States and remains the largest grantmaker in a region of 20 towns located in the heart of central Connecticut.
