Event Description

Rethink giving this holiday season: “I LOVE NEW HAVEN NONPROFITS” Boutique

Are you having a hard time find just the right gift for your special someone?

If you answered “yes” then read on.

What is the "I Love Greater New Haven Nonprofits" Boutique?

The boutique was the idea of local entrepreneurs at The Grove. At this boutique you can review and select from the work of dozens of local nonprofit to which you can make a donation in appreciation of your special someone.

Why would you want to buy at the "I Love Greater New Haven Nonprofits" Boutique?

By donating to local nonprofits you celebrate that special person, support great local work and support the local economy -- local nonprofits buy most of the goods and servicesthey use locally.

How will you know you are supporting great local work?

The "I Love Greater New Haven Nonprofits" Boutique works in collaboration with The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven and The United Way of Greater New Haven to provide the information you need so that you can determine which nonprofits most effectively deliver the services that you believe are needed in Greater New Haven. You can therefore give with knowledge and with confidence when you give locally.

Who is behind this effort?

Local entrepreneurs who are members of The Grove working in collaboration with Project Storefront and The Greater New Haven Chamber of Commerce, The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven and The United Way of Greater New Haven. Together we created this unique approach to supporting social services, a locally produced product that you purchase with a donation for the benefit of your neighbors who are served by these programs and in celebration of those that you love, respect and appreciate.

Where and when can you buy that special gift for that special someone on your list?

The Boutique is open Wednesday to Saturday 11am-8pm and is located at 71 Orange Street in New Haven.
