ABOUT US2020-04-25T17:56:38-04:00

In 2013, a group of New Haven residents recognized the need within the community for a philanthropic organization that would allow individuals and businesses to the opportunity to make tax-deductible contributions that would fund grants for the benefit of New Haven today, and for future generations.

This group acknowledged how important it is to make sure that these areas were funded so that New Haven could continue to grow as a viable and desirable community for current and future residents.
