The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven is a philanthropic institution that was established in 1928 through a bequest. For nearly 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.

LISC Turns 40!

And we've got a lot to celebrate: $20 billion in total investments, record impact in 2018, a 20-year collaboration with the NFL Foundation, and the list goes on. At a gala event in New York City, LISC honors the indispensable work of our partner organizations and the two-decade service of our board chair, former Treasury Secretary Robert E. Rubin.

In Forbes, Props for LISC’s Work With ESPN & Under Armour to Make Space for Play

An in-depth article in Forbes looks at how ESPN is putting its weight behind programs to boost sports and play in under-resourced places, and calls out LISC’s innovative RePlay partnership with ESPN and Under Armour. Since the collaboration began, we’ve helped 12 community organizations and schools revitalize play spaces and other facilities that promote physical and emotional wellbeing for hundreds of young people in Baltimore neighborhoods with high rates of poverty.
