Thank You for Making Branford an Amazing Place to Live!

As you’re preparing for the upcoming holidays, we wanted to take a moment to reflect on our gratitude for you, the amazing Branford community, for your continued support year after year to the Branford Community Foundation (BCF). We couldn’t do all we do without you!

Did you know that BCF is the only permanent source of funding for the changing needs of our community? Your support helps neighbors who have lost their jobs and need temporary assistance. Your help matters to the kids who get to participate in sports and recreational activities, thanks to local programs for people with disabilities.

We want you to know that we take good care of your generous contributions by investing them wisely and distributing a portion of the income to vital organizations serving Branford. Here are just a few more examples of how YOU have made a difference each and every day to help your neighbors in 2019.

Your generous contributions to BCF helped:

•Feed Branford Kids, a program that helps needy kids by sending them home on the weekends with a backpack full of food.

•Branford Early Learning Center by funding enrichment programs for preschool students at no additional cost to families.

•Literacy Volunteers of Greater New Haven and ERACE (East Shore Region Adult & Continuing Education), which partnered to train and support 12 volunteer tutors to teach 130 adult learners in English as a Second Language.

•Blackstone Library, to support much-needed renovations for this beautiful and historic landmark.

You have made a difference in your community, and we are hoping you will continue to help your neighbors by donating to BCF this season! Please give as generously as you can to our year-end appeal! Your ongoing commitment to Branford is critical. Learn more by visiting our Ways to Give page or donating today.

Thank you!
