NONPROFIT GETS GRANT
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.
