Making a planned gift is a wonderful way to achieve your own personal, financial, estate-planning, and philanthropic goals while you support the community and the causes you care about most.

Nettie J. Dayton Circle

1900-2104-Nettie-D-CIRCLE-for-website3-smaller.jpg In 1928 the very first fund at The Community Foundation was established by the bequest of Nettie J. Dayton. The Nettie J. Dayton Circle honors those who have followed in our "founding mother's" footsteps and performed the same act of generosity with their estate plans.



It doesn’t require a gift now

You can take care of your family and friends and give back to your community

You can remain anonymous

Your simple acts could include:

A provision in your will or personal trust.

Beneficiary designations of retirement plans, life insurance policies, or bank accounts.

It is because of our Nettie J. Dayton Circle members that New Haven and surrounding communities will have the philanthropic resources they need in the coming years—to solve problems and seize opportunities to strengthen the New Haven area as a vibrant, socially and culturally enriched place to live and work. Thank you for considering your membership in the Nettie J. Dayton Circle.
