The Fairfield community is supporting its non-profits in a new way. Here’s how.

Through the generosity of one of its donors, the Fairfield Community Foundation is partnering with Community Development Professionals to offer a new grant.

The purpose of the Sustainability Grant is to help prepare an organization’s long term success by offering the selected nonprofit a one year executive training program with Community Development Professionals (CDP). CDP will work with nonprofit leadership to develop a Nonprofit Development Strategy and execute an action plan over the year.
