November 27, 2018

#GivingTuesday is November 27.  It's a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage giving to organizations and causes that are meaningful to each of us.  Your gift to a local nonprofit on #GivingTuesday is a thoughtful way to end the year showing you care about our community and the well-being of your friends and neighbors.

We have a good idea about how nonprofits are doing in Greater New Haven. Our local nonprofits and third party sources like the Nonprofit Finance Fund's State of the Sector Survey tell us:

  • State budget and federal priority shifts threaten the well-being of local nonprofits.
  • There’s a growing demand for services.
  • New partnerships are emerging as nonprofits look to solve problems through strategic alliances.
  • There’s a growing sense of urgency for advocacy and community organizing work.

We've made giving easy for you. Search our local directory of 400 nonprofits doing good work here in your own community.  You can search by the name of the organization or by the services they provide, like basic needs, health and wellness, or nurturing youth.

Give with knowledge. Give with confidence. Give to local nonprofits on #GivingTuesday.

Tracking Our Wellbeing

Community Progress Report 2016

Calibrating the Community: Data to Strengthen Greater New Haven (2013) was a report that was created to further our collective understanding of how people within our region are doing and how our region is doing as a whole. The Community Progress Report (2016) continued this ongoing work. Using the latest economic, demographic, educational, health and well-being data, it provides benchmarks that identify strengths to build on and challenges that need to be addressed. Data collection for the next wellbeing report is underway.
