The hum of the school bus, the friendly greeting at a favorite deli; these are sounds that remind us of community and the comforts of a small town. The generous spirit of the people in Darien makes it a special place to live and raise a family.

Just as neighbor helps neighbor, The Community Fund of Darien has been taking care of those in need for more than 60 years.

Thanks to your generous support, we have been able to provide grants of more than $700,000 every year to more than 30 nonprofit human service agencies serving the critical needs of our neighbors in Stamford, Darien and Norwalk. Your gift, combined with the gifts of your neighbors, makes a real difference in addressing needs that exist right here in our community, such as poverty, homelessness, hunger, domestic violence crisis services and child and family counseling. Together, the effect of your gift is powerful and life-changing for those less fortunate who live amongst us.

Your gift to The Community Fund also supports Darien initiatives such as Thriving Youth, the volunteer fair and the Darien Road Race. You may have benefitted from these programs in some way and not even have known it.
