  • CC of FairfieldSave the date for fall golf!

    You may not be thinking about golf just yet, with snow on the ground, but you don't want to miss our October 6th outing at the stunning Country Club of Fairfield. It's a fantastic day on a challenging course with the perfect end to the day: drinks on the terrace, delicious food, and prizes and auction items like golf for three at Olympic in San Francisco. Visit the golf page for more info or sign up here. Tournament Sponsor: Eaton Partners LLC

    Fairfield County Community Foundation's 24-hour online giving day was Friday, March 7th. You made over 1,000 donations to help us win prize money for literacy services, and we are so, so grateful. We didn't win the top prize, so Mike keeps his hair (for this year, anyway!). Thank you for doing this for the kids of Domus.
