CFMC Statement to the Community

In the face of challenges, we all have choices …

At the Community Foundation of Middlesex County, we view equity as our responsibility, and we are committed to helping all our friends and neighbors thrive and prosper. Quite simply, we believe that, while we are all different, we all deserve respect, and we understand that a thriving community cannot exist where all are not welcomed or treated as equals.

Live Local Give Local Fund

100% of your gift to the Live Local Give Local Fund will be granted to our local nonprofits.

You Can Make a Difference

The community is where we work, where we play, where we raise our children, where we call home.

It is our responsibility as citizens to exercise good stewardship within our communities. Live locally and give locally to preserve the quality of life in our towns through grants supporting our nonprofit organizations.

The Live Local Give Local campaign is an initiative of the Community Foundation of Middlesex County to raise awareness among the residents of Middlesex County about how important it is to take care of the community. The Community Foundation of Middlesex County helps maintain the quality of life in Middlesex County by providing grants to nonprofit organizations to address the community needs.

Community Philanthropy

Making Life in Middlesex County Better

cfmclogoThe community foundation concept is a simple one. It is a group of individuals and businesses who pool resources to support the community where we live, work and play. Perhaps you want to preserve a piece of the community you love. Perhaps you are just beginning to explore your charitable purposes and want to join with others to create impact.

In 1997, community leaders from across Middlesex County established our Community Foundation dedicated to enhancing and improving the quality of life in the area. They believed that our county deserved a community foundation like those that were working successfully in surrounding communities. Ours is now one of 17 in Connecticut and more than 850 nationwide.

Anyone Can Be a Philanthropist

There are many ways to give to the community. The Community Foundation offers many flexible opportunities and many ways to respond to community needs. Learn more about what the Community Foundation of Middlesex County does, and how you can participate.
