Fairfield County Community Foundation Inc.



The Fairfield County Community Foundation was formed in 1992 when five smaller foundations merged. The Danbury, Greenwich, Stamford and Five Town (comprised of Westport, Wilton, Weston, Norwalk and Darien) foundations, and the Fairfield County Foundation (which was part of the New York Community Trust), merged to better serve their communities and Fairfield County.


Over 15 years, thanks to the generosity of fundholders and contributors, the Foundation has awarded more than $62 million in grants that have helped prepare preschoolers to thrive in kindergarten, kept the elderly in their homes, provided health care to the ill and uninsured, cultivated a new generation of artists, protected our environment and much more.
