  • Fairfield County's Giving Day

    Thursday, March 01, 2018 at 12:00 AM

    Fairfield County's Giving Day is Fairfield County's largest philanthropic event! It's an amazing opportunity provided by Fairfield County's Community Foundation to support local nonprofit organizations, such as Triangle Community Center (TCC). Since 1990, TCC has been providing resources and programming for the LGBTQ community of Fairfield County for almost 30 years.

    This year, our goal is to win the grand prize of $20,000 for Most Unique Donors (meaning individual donors with different names, emails, addresses, and payment information).

    Giving Day is a once in a year opportunity to make an enormous difference in the lives of our LGBTQ clients, along with the young adults who rely on our drop-in services. With your past donations, you helped us to make case management services possible, along with a Drop-In Space for young adults. Your donation directly helps to finish our Drop-In Space, which is a safe space for clients and young adults to prepare themselves a warm meal, clean their laundry with a washing machine and dryer, and hang out in a safe, affirming environment.

    Along with our Drop-In Space, your support also makes Fairfield County's Pride in the Park 2018 happen. Without you, the largest Pride celebration in Connecticut wouldn't be possible.

    You have 24 hours to give where you live. Help us win the grand prize of $20,000!

    Remember to donate through TCC's page on the website for Fairfield County's Giving Day, NOT through our website. Although we appreciate all donations, any donations on our website will not count towards the grand prize.
