The Great Giving Has Started!




The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven's 36-hour online "giving fest" known as The Great Give gets under way on Wednesday, May 1, at 8 a.m., and we hope you'll take time to support your favorite performing arts organization! Your donations will again support our Artists' Awards grants program, which awards money to Connecticut professional performing artists to create new work and premiere it at the next GreenStage Live Arts festival. It will also support an expanded slate of GreenStage programming that we intend to introduce later this year, in Guilford and other Shoreline towns. Our goal is $10,000.


Every cent you donate to GreenStage through The Great Give goes to us and qualifies us for a pro-rated share of $100,000 in matching funds from a Community Foundation pool at the end of the event. In addition, there are particular times when your donation can be compounded by various prizes and incentives. So check these out; you may want to time your donation to maximize your support of GreenStage:
