CCP's 50th Anniversary

The power of good leadership: 1969 - 2019

Throughout 2019, CCP is celebrating its 50th year of supporting philanthropy for the public good. Hundreds of members have invested billions of dollars over our organization’s life. We are honored to play a role in advancing Connecticut philanthropy and will spend this year reflecting on our history and looking ahead to plot a new course for the organization. You can view CCP's history and timeline of key events, which paints a picture of our first fifty years.

Highlights of our #CCP50 plans include:
  • We’re sharing the story of the Early Childhood Funder Collaborative to illustrate how our CCP is working its mission.
  • On March 7, the "State Budget Impact Forum" in Hartford, will help grantmakers to understand Connecticut's state budget, learn about its projected impacts on health, education, and income security, and hear from leaders about opportunities to influence the current trajectory.
  • On May 7, CCP's day-long conference, "Reimagining Philanthropy: New Strategies for Success," will bring grantmakers together with national and local leaders to explore critical questions in the philanthropic community.
  • New and refined analysis in our Connecticut Giving Report, to help us deepen our understanding of Connecticut grantmaking.
  • And for some fun, throughout the year, we'll host CCP trivia icebreakers at our programs and members can participate in our "Where is #CCP50?” photo contests to win prizes.

Where is #CCP50?  

Have some fun with the "Where is #CCP50?" contest while helping to raise the visibility of CCP, the 50th Anniversary, and CCP Members. Once a month on CCP's social media, we'll post a photo of our logo at a Connecticut location. CCP Members who email us with the correct location will be entered into a random drawing for a fun prize -- a Newman’s Own gift bag, courtesy of Newman’s Own Foundation. Help spread the fun by sharing on your social media. The winner will be posted on the same channels along with facts about the location and funders who make an impact in the area.
