The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven is a philanthropic institution that was established in 1928 through a bequest. For more than 80 years, thousands of donors have built the community endowment by establishing permanent funds or making gifts to existing funds that distribute grants to nonprofits serving the Greater New Haven community and beyond. 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 Foundation is among the oldest and largest of approximately 800 community foundations in the United States and remains the largest grantmaker in a region of twenty-towns located in the heart of central Connecticut.

Research Validates Collaborative Crime Strategies

In some communities, there is a sense that crime is insurmountable. As part of our occasional series on community development research, LISC's research chief, Chris Walker, says that the data tells another story. “The sense of futility that pervades some conversations about safety is wildly misplaced,” he writes in his latest blog. He points to outcomes research that details the success of place-based strategies. The challenge, he says, lies in cutting them to fit local circumstances.

ESPN and LISC Reopen Gym in Harlem

Will the next great NYC ball player start here? Who knows but for this summer, middle and high school kids in Harlem and across the city will have a new gym for a 12-week hoops clinic and basketball tournament. The basketball court, inside Democracy Prep Harlem Charter School in New York City, was renovated with a new floor as part of ESPN and LISC’s Home Court program, which aims to improve the quality and accessibility of neighborhoods gyms. The NBA and NBA Cares joined in to provide equipment and uniforms for the grand re-opening.

Bridging the Opportunity Gap

The unemployment rate is at a record low, but millions of Americans still have difficulty finding a living wage job. The challenge is especially acute for people returning to their communities after incarceration. A new $4.5 million grant to LISC from the U.S. Department of Labor will expand services at LISC's Financial Opportunity Centers to address the particular challenges they face and, in the process, reduce recidivism, make communities safer, and boost local economic activity.
