Letter: Thank You Greenwich Nonprofits

Dear Editor:

As a Board Member of Fairfield County’s Community Foundation (“FCCF”), I’m writing to express our gratitude to 14 outstanding Greenwich nonprofits for their work during the COVID-19 crisis.

Fairfield County Community Foundation’s COVID-19 Resiliency Fund awarded the following Greenwich nonprofits grant funding: Abilis, Inc., Boys and Girls Club of Greenwich, Community Centers, Inc., Family Centers, Inc., Greenwich Hospital, Kids In Crisis, Meals on Wheels, Neighbor To Neighbor, Parsonage Cottage, Pathways, Inc., River House Adult Day Care Center, Special Education Legal Fund, Inc., Transportation Association of Greenwich, and the YWCA Greenwich.

FCCF launched the Fairfield County COVID-19 Resiliency Fund on March 18th to support frontline nonprofits. Nearly $2.5 million has been raised from donors throughout Fairfield County. To date, more than $1.9 million has been distributed to 154 local nonprofit organizations, reaching more than 260,000 of our region’s most vulnerable residents — that’s a quarter of the entire population of Fairfield County!

We have been very impressed with how Fairfield County’s nonprofits have nimbly pivoted in response to the pandemic and we are honored to support their critical work.
