The Nor­walk-based Cul­tural Al­liance of Fair­field County (CAFC) has been awarded a $215,000 grant from the Daniel E. Of­futt III Pri­vate Foun­da­tion Trust, which will help en­able CAFC to re­main a strong ad­vo­cate for artists, cul­tural in­sti­tu­tions and creative busi­nesses in the re­gion.

“This in­cred­i­bly gen­er­ous do­na­tion is truly a gamechanger for the pro­grams we of­fer and the ser­vices we pro­vide to our 600plus mem­bers,” said CAFC Board of Di­rec­tors Pres­i­dent Cindy Vac­caro.

“Be­cause of sup­port­ers like the Daniel Ed­ward Of­futt III Pri­vate Foun­da­tion Trust, CAFC is able to sup­port artists and cul­tural or­ga­ni­za­tions in the area with the ad­vo­cacy, pro­mo­tion, and lead­er­ship they re­quire to thrive,” she added. “We be­lieve, as Mr. Of­futt did, that a com­mu­nity with a vi­brant arts and cul­ture sec­tor is a great place to live, work, learn, and visit.”

CAFC is one of sev­eral Fair­field County, Con­necti­cut, non-prof­its that will ben­e­fit from grants from the Daniel E. Of­futt III, Pri­vate Foun­da­tion Trust. Re­cip­i­ents in­clude the Library As­so­ci­a­tions of Wil­ton, We­ston, and West­port; Beech­wood Arts; the Regina A. Quick Cen­ter for the Arts at Fair­field Univer­sity; the Sil­ver­mine Arts Cen­ter; the West­port His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety; and oth­ers.
