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 2023, NCSF received 43 applications. Of these, NCSF awarded 41 students, all who qualified for federal financial aid, approximately $3,658 each. It is imperative that we increase our fundraising to ensure that the NCSF can provide aid to every deserving applicant. With awards less than $4,000 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.
