During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
Our mission is to enhance the capacity of the community to care for one another by: assisting the community to identify and prioritize its needs; keeping the community informed about efforts to meet those needs; providing cost effective fundraising; distributing funds to meet identified community needs; assuring accountability of grant recipients; fostering coordinated and cooperative efforts to deliver services
The Community Fund of Darien was founded almost 70 years ago and since that time, we have distributed over $20 million to local nonprofit organizations and community initiatives. In 1977, we became the Darien United Way & Community Council. In 2006 we successfully withdrew from the United Way system and returned to our local roots where we continue to serve as the safety net for our community.
