Ways to Give

A gift to the Branford Community Foundation is an investment in our town. Our endowed funds produce revenue to support local programs and agencies that provide assistance to Branford residents. Your tax-deductible donation of any size makes a positive impact on our community.


Contribute to the General Fund
The BCF is honored to receive monetary donations – small and large – that benefit the BCF general fund throughout the year. Your tax-deductible donation of any size makes a positive impact on our community. Contributions to the General Fund can be made:

  • In Memory of a Loved One – Upon the passing of a loved one, individuals often request, in lieu of flowers, that memorial contributions be directed to The Branford Community Foundation.
  • In Honor of an Individual or Group or as a Celebratory Gift – Contributions are often received in honor of a beloved individual or in celebration of a milestone occasion. Such donations are often made in lieu of gifts (ie. teacher gifts, holiday gifts, or milestone birthday and anniversary gifts).
