Mission

The International Association of New Haven is committed to funding programs that enhance and promote cultural understanding in our diverse community.


Background The International 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 understanding and respect.

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.

Guided 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 education.

Impact

The International Association of New Haven awarded programs that enhance and promote cultural understanding in our diverse community. The amount of $69,000 was donated with $60,000 evenly divided between three outstanding organizations in the New Haven area:
   Long Wharf Theatre-Newcomer Play Project;

   City Seed - to fund Community Gardens Outreach;
 
   Music Haven- Diversity in Motion in collaboration with IRIS.
 
Sponsorships valued at between $1000 and $3000  were given to: Arte, NHSO, Yale in China, NH Land Trust and Elm City Internationals.
 
In addition, $1000 sponsorship awards were made to The Institute Library for special program and Home Haven for three-part series on the Middle East.
Needs The International Association of Greater New Haven has recently been classified as a Private Foundation because almost all of its grant funds come from internally generated income. IANH will continue to contribute almost all of its income to charitable giving consistent with its mission.

IANH needs to broaden its base of contributions from external sources – primarily individual donors – to increase the impact of its funds for local agencies. 

CEO Statement There is no CEO or Executive Director.  All administrative/executive functions are carried out by members of the volunteer board.
Board Chair Statement

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 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 award from the International Association of New Haven confirms its mission to bring not only the arts but multicultural education to children in our communities.
