The Darien Foundation Mission

The Darien Foundation is an independent, community based, non-profit organization that is dedicated to providing grants for technology and capital initiatives in Darien, Connecticut.    The three pillars of our funding are:

  • Darien Public Schools
  • Darien Emergency Services
  • Darien Non-Profit Organizations

The Foundation awards grants for special projects that are beyond the funding capabilities of these groups and which will positively impact the Darien community.  As a 501(c)3, The Darien Foundation provides residents and corporate donors a centralized, convenient and highly effective channel for supporting our public schools, emergency services and community organizations.  Our volunteer Board of Directors reflects the many constituencies of Darien, thoroughly evaluates grant requests and assists grant recipients in achieving their goals.
