For a century, the generous gifts of community-minded donors have enabled Connecticut Community Foundation to address countless community needs as they have evolved over time. As our 100th anniversary approaches, we continue to work with generous people who are creating their own legacies by establishing charitable funds that support the community causes they care most about, funded with gifts today or later through their estates.

Looking toward the next hundred years, we have launched the Second Century Fund. Your gift to this unrestricted endowment fund will help ensure that the Foundation has the resources it will need to meet community challenges—including those we can’t even foresee—that are sure to arise over the generations to come.

Thanks to several leadership donors, the first $200,000 in gifts to the Second Century Fund will be matched dollar-for-dollar.

Whether you plan to create a legacy fund of your own, you have done so already, or you are not yet ready to take that step, your gift to the Second Century Fund will build on 100 years of impact and improve the lives of area residents for the next century and beyond. Please give today!
