Your generosity is their potential!

The majority of the Foundation’s funding is provided by gifts  and grants  from individuals, local businesses, corporations, service clubs, foundations and memorial contributions.  

As college tuitions continue to increase, there is a significant need for scholarship funding within New Canaan. The cost of education is accelerating and the needs of all applicants cannot be fully met.  In 2016, NCSF received 58 applications. Of these, NCSF awarded 49 students, all who qualified for federal financial aid, approximately $1,470 each. It is imperative that we increase our fundraising in order to ensure that the NCSF can provide aid to every deserving applicant. At under $1,500 on average per student, we have the immediate need to increase the dollar amount of each scholarship and create an endowment fund, which will generate income year after year.
