As a Geographic Affiliate Fund at CFMC, The Killingworth Community Fund creates a unique partnership between Killingworth and the Community Foundation of Middlesex County.

Building on ten years of impact, the committed volunteers of the Killingworth Foundation chose to focus on how they could continue supporting their community while turning to a trusted resource to handle the administrative details. Thus, the Killingworth Foundation became the Killingworth Community Fund at the Community Foundation of Middlesex County.

Nonprofit grantees and local leaders alike applauded the partnership and praised the efforts of the Killingworth Community Fund for its ten years of philanthropy and hard work.  Chris Salafia, Treasurer of the Killingworth Youth League (KYL) reflected, “To me, The Killingworth Foundation represents all that is good about our town and its people.  TKF embodies the small town values of integrity and honor.  I’m pleased that the resources of the Community Foundation will help continue that commitment to make a meaningful impact on our community as the Killingworth Community Fund.”   In addition, Patty Dowling, former Executive Director of the Shoreline Soup Kitchen & Pantries (SSK&P), stated, “We at SSK&P are grateful for the generous support of this wonderful organization. The need for our services has grown, and we need to spread the word.  The grant for new signs will always provide a consistent visual message of welcome and information to those in need.  This partnership with CFMC will strengthen the efforts of the Killingworth Community Fund and will benefit all.”

The current Killingworth Community Fund committee includes Killingworth residents Mary Meixell, Mary Anne Lisk, Ed Lisk, Joan Gay, and Cathy Iino. Wally Jones serves as chair of the committee; he also serves as chair of the Community Foundation’s Board of Directors.

The mission of the Killingworth Community Fund continues the good work of the committed volunteers, residents and organizations of Killingworth.

“Ten years ago, dedicated citizens created the Killingworth Foundation to increase the amount and impact of local philanthropy,” explained Catherine Iino, First Selectwoman, Killingworth. “Now the Killingworth Foundation is becoming the Killingworth Community Fund at the Community Foundation of Middlesex County, which will enable the organization to further its mission more effectively than ever, thanks to the professional staff of CFMC. I’m so pleased that this vital piece of Killingworth’s civic network will continue to grow and prosper.”
