Learn How To Support Your Favorite Causes Forever

What's the most lasting way to support the nonprofits and causes that matter most to you?

Establish a permanent endowed fund at The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven... it takes just three steps.


Tell us how you wish the money in your fund to be used.
Is there a specific charity you’d like to benefit, or a specific cause, or are you leaving a “flexible” gift that can be used to meet any community problem or opportunity?

Tell us what name you’d like on the fund.

Remember: you’re creating a permanent legacy in that name. A fund can be established in your name, or in the name of your family, your organization, or anyone you wish to honor. One hundred years from now, your fund will still be making gifts in whatever name you choose. Of course, you can also set up an anonymous fund if you prefer.

Decide the amount and type of gift you want to make and endow your fund.

Your gift is invested and earnings from your find are used to make future grants while the fund continues to grow. Your gift and all future earnings from your gift are a permanent source of community capital, helping to do good work today and forever.
