The Darien Foundation was originally founded in 1998 as The Darien Technology Foundation.
In 2007—responding to the needs of the community—the Board of Directors voted to expand their grant funding beyond technology projects to include community capital projects. As a result, the name was changed to The Darien Foundation to represent the wider scope of the mission.
The Darien Foundations’s reputation for thoroughly researching grant requests and carefully administering grant awards has earned the confidence of its donors. This dynamic, community-minded foundation has become the go-to funding source for projects that support and enhance Darien.
