Join us in building a thriving, healthy, sustainable Eastern Connecticut!

The Community Foundation of Eastern Connecticut is here to help you give back to the community that you call home. We provide philanthropic guidance and can help you learn more about the causes important to you.

Most importantly, we listen to you, to our nonprofit partners and to what’s happening in our region. As one of the region’s largest permanent sources of grant funding, we also offer common meeting ground and leadership on important issues. The Foundation focuses on six priority areas: early childhood care and education; youth development and empowerment; access to affordable, safe, and inclusive housing; access to high quality and affordable health care; women’s and girls’ empowerment; and environmental resilience.

We welcome the opportunity to work with you on putting your philanthropy into action for the good of Eastern Connecticut and beyond!
