The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven is a philanthropic institution that was established in 1928 through a bequest. For over 90 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 700+ community foundations in the United States and remains the largest grantmaker in a region of twenty-towns located in the heart of central Connecticut.
