We bring together People who care and causes that matter—individuals, families, foundations, and businesses to build a better community and support the nonprofits that make a positive difference in the Northwest Corner of CT.

We make giving easy and worry free.

NCCF has been supporting community giving since 1969, and has consistently earned the National Standards certification for excellence, accountability and

Creating your charitable legacy is our business. With personalized service designed around your specific charitable goals, we manage every aspect of your
grantmaking from start to finish

We know your community.

Our dedicated staff has a deep working knowledge of the communities in our Northwest Corner and the nonprofits that support them. Whether your passion is
the arts, the environment, human services, animal welfare, education, health or any local cause you care about, we can offer guidance, advice and giving options on how your philanthropy can make the greatest impact in your community and around the region

We support your giving style.

We support your giving style. Give now or leave a bequest for the future –or both. We support a vast array of temporary and permanent giving relationships that contemplate your financial and tax needs, while offering flexibility around your giving style. Whether through a Donor Advised, Designated, Scholarship, Field of Interest, Agency or Community Catalyst Fund, we will work to create a giving solution tailored uniquely to you.

Confidentially speaking…

We are considered trusted advisors to the legal and financial community. We work within the client/advisor relationship to support attorneys, accountants and
wealth advisors in charitable gift planning, including life income gifts, IRA rollovers, life insurance gifts, private foundation conversions, and other tax favorable giving options. We can also help incorporate charitable giving into your estate and financial plan as an intergenerational wealth management strategy.
