The Community Fund of Darien

The Youth Community Fund (YCF) brings together public and private high school students to learn the value of philanthropy through volunteerism and grant-making activities with local nonprofit organizations. These students:

  • Research local needs

  • Tour and volunteer at nonprofits

  • Review grant applications

  • Award over $10,000 in grant money to nonprofits in Darien, Norwalk and Stamford

YCF students know the power of effective, positive change in their community. Here they are helping out at Building One Community and Inspirica.
