Association of New Haven is a cultural, educational and social organization
dedicated to supporting and strengthening mutual understanding between the
people of Greater New Haven and the rest of the world. We have been celebrating
the world's differences in New Haven for half a century through mutual

Founded in 1949, “The
International Center” was originally established as a community organization
that provided support to foreign students and their families at Yale and other
universities and colleges. Its “International House” at 406 Prospect Street was
a home and community to students, their families and scholars from all over the
world. We sold our house in 2005 and have reorganized as The International
Association of New Haven (IANH), a grant giving organization supporting local
projects that foster international understanding.
by our original purpose as the New Haven hub for global connection, IANH looks
forward to fulfilling its mission for another fifty years and beyond. We invite
grant proposals from non-profit organizations for innovative projects that
support the international community of Greater New Haven, and foster global

IANH needs to broaden its base of contributions from
external sources –primarily individual donors – to increase the impact of its
funds for local agencies.
As an independent charitable foundation, the International Association of New Haven is committed to funding programs that enhance and promote cultural understanding in our diverse community.
Founded in 1949 as "The International Center," it was originally established as an organization that provided housing to students, scholars, and their families from all over the world. It quickly became a hub of communal activities not only among its residents but also between the international and local community of greater New Haven.
In 2005, upon the sale of the house, we reorganized in 2007 as the International Association of New Haven (IANH), a grant giving organization supporting local projects that enhance and promote international understanding, thus keeping the spirit of the International Center alive.
Since its inception as a grant-giving foundation, the International Association of New Haven has awarded more than $200,000 in grants to support programs in the New Haven area.
The International Association of New Haven has made the transition from its roots as a programming organization to one that supports our new mission - that of providing grants to organizations that further international understanding within the greater New Haven community.
Following a successful launch event in October 2007, IANH has now completed several years of grant giving activity, awarding grants to community and educational groups in the Greater New Haven area. IANH funds have supported a diversity of organizations and projects, all of which contributed in meaningful ways to increased understanding of the complicated world in which we live.
IANH has strengthened the Board by adding several new members with diverse backgrounds who bring the skills to take our organization to a new level. We begin this year with a solid foundation, a strong group of dedicated volunteers and an impressive slate of grant recipients. If ever there were a time to encourage global understanding at the local level, it is now. Please join us in supporting the IANH’s mission to funding programs that enhance and promote cultural understanding in our diverse community.

a new project, "Public Education about Refugees" that targeted
schools in the area. "A great day for international
education in New Haven!" exclaimed IRIS' director Chris George, upon
hearing about the award. The funds will be used to develop both educational
resource materials about refugees for use in the schools and a strategic
outreach plan to key community groups. The International Association of New

this new project with a substantial award will contribute to enhancing cultural
understanding in the New Haven community.
