"what's in a name," by shakespeare does not necessarily apply to the community fund of darien
In fact, you might be surprised to learn that a large percentage of donations go to Norwalk and Stamford!
Each organization we fund is thoroughly vetted by our small staff and more than 60 trained community volunteers to ensure that our donors' contributions are deployed effectively with targeted impact, and we monitor recipient organizations throughout the year. By investing in effective programs and organizations that promote equity and provide long-term support for all local residents, we strengthen our whole community!
We are excited to launch The Norwalk Fund and The Stamford Fund, which restricts donations to nonprofits by town. Why is this important? You have the peace of mind knowing that your philanthropic dollars stay in your immediate neighborhood while benefitting from The Community Fund of Darien's 70-years of experience, knowledge and relationships, its due diligence and vetting process of nonprofit agencies and the collective impact of donor gifts!
Just ONE gift to The Community Fund of Darien's Norwalk Fund or Stamford Fund will benefit multiple agencies!
