The Inner-City Foundation For Charity & Education is a 501(c)(3) foundation that supports organizations providing assistance, including food, clothing, shelter, counseling and education, to at-risk and needy children and adults of Fairfield County, Connecticut.
Over the last quarter century, The Inner-City Foundation for Charity & Education has granted more than $32 million to about 200 Fairﬁeld County programs and organizations: Programs and organizations providing the most basic human needs to members of our Fairﬁeld County community, like food, shelter, schools and programs providing childhood, teen and adult educational opportunities, clearing a path that can change the trajectory of a person's life forever.
We also support programs and places providing safety from domestic violence, help for addiction and recovery, and so much more.
When a person has nowhere else to go, it's often the organizations and programs that we support who are there, and they are counting on us to support their work, now more than ever. Cost of living in Connecticut, and in Fairﬁeld County, is on the rise, with 40% of Fairﬁeld County households unable to meet the basic cost of living.
That's 10% higher than only two years ago, and it means hundreds of thousands of residents right here in Fairﬁeld County who are now struggling just to make ends meet.
You can help. By donating to us, you open the door to hundreds of programs and organizations doing good right now in Fairﬁeld County.
And you can feel good knowing that the many organizations and programs we support are thoughtfully considered for purpose and efﬁciency as well as for results.
We know that the places we support are making a difference: Kolbe Cathedral High School in Bridgeport sent 100% of their graduating class to college last year and since 2009 The New Covenant Center in Stamford has doubled the total meals served in their soup kitchen and food pantry, providing approximately 700,000 meals annually, as well as other services, like job search resources.We know that by supporting organizations like these, we are making our community stronger.
Thank you for considering donating to The Inner-City Foundation for Charity & Education. We'd love for you to be our partner in philanthropy.
