New Canaan Community Foundation supports New Canaan Land Trust Fowler Purchase

New Canaan Community Foundation supports Acquisition of Silvermine Fowler Preserve

On behalf of the New Canaan Community Foundation, I am pleased to inform you that the New Canaan Community Foundation Board of Directors has unanimously approved the New Canaan Land Trust's special out-of-cycle grant request in the form of a pledge for $25,000.

The use of these grant funds is restricted to the purpose described in your grant proposal, specifically to help fund the successful acquisition of the 6.35-acre Silvermine-Fowler Preserve. 

It is our hope that this pledge will help spark additional investment in the project. We look forward to receiving an update on fundraising and acquisition of the property, at which time our grant will be released. 

On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Foundation, we applaud your dedication and commitment to meeting the needs of our community. 

Sincerely, Leo Karl, III 

NCCF Board Chair
