East Hill Woods

The East Hill Woods Fund was established in November, 2009 with a contribution of $9.2 million. The fund is the result of the sale of East Hill Woods, Inc., a nonprofit corporation, to Watermark at East Hill, a continuing care retirement community in Southbury. This gift was the largest ever received by the Connecticut Community Foundation.

As a field of interest fund, the East Hill Woods Fund provides grants to area nonprofits and municipalities that provide services for older adults living in the Foundation’s service area. A portion of the fund is also designated to train and educate future managers of continuing care retirement communities.
