About Branford Community Foundation

The Branford Community Foundation, founded in 1980, is a public, nonprofit, tax exempt, charitable trust. It provides an administrative, philanthropic service–a means by which public-spirited citizens may make gifts or bequests, the income from which is distributed for educational, cultural, health, social and civic needs.

The Foundation is overseen by the Board of Directors comprised of community leaders who serve without compensation and who have been selected for their knowledge, interest and integrity of judgment. A part-time, executive director works with the Board of Directors, and Advisors provide outreach with the community, give guidance to the Board of Directors and help to develop future leadership.

Branford Community Report – The Branford Community Report, recently released by the Branford Community Foundation (BCF), provides a snapshot on Branford’s demographic trends and general community well being. BCF’s goal in commissioning this study, in partnership with the Community Foundation for Greater New Haven and DataHaven, is to better understand the town’s current community strengths  and to highlight areas that may need support.
