The Prosperity Foundation (TPF) is an emerging philanthropic and educational initiative designed to strengthen Connecticut’s Black/African American communities in critical areas such as health, education, and economic development. TPF is an outgrowth of the Urban Prosperity Fund, which was created in New Haven, Connecticut in 2010 in order to promote philanthropy, prosperity and self-empowerment in the African-American community. TPF will become a permanent and endowed vehicle for addressing the needs of Connecticut-based African Americans and bringing the community together around common interests. TPF will gradually take on all of the features of a community foundation, including donor-advised funds, educational events, giving circles, and other forms of philanthropy. Through TPF, philanthropy will become both a path to grant making for organizations serving the community and a portal through which Connecticut’s Black community and other interested parties can connect and collectively contribute to improving conditions and opportunities for the community.
