My family and I moved to New Canaan four years ago, and since then I have had the pleasure of volunteering for several wonderful local non-profit organizations. In 2009, while seeking support for renovating the Mead Park tennis courts in New Canaan, I was introduced to the New Canaan Community Foundation. I was so impressed by the impact the organization has on our Town, and I joined the Board in 2011. Through the annual grant process, the Foundation provides funding for start-up initiatives as well as for existing non-profits to develop new programs, make capital improvements and provide services to support the needs of our community. The New Canaan Community Foundation touches many lives through grant making and helps organizations that serve our town to grow and prosper in this ever changing environment. I am both honored and grateful to be a part of such a fine organization and hope you will consider including the Foundation in your charitable giving this year at www.newcanaancf.org.
