The Long Island Sound is a premier ecological resource embedded in the lives, livelihoods, and well-being of millions in Connecticut and beyond.

Come hear how funders joined together to make their small investments more impactful on the preservation and restoration of the Sound.

We’ll share:

  • how the Collaborative was formed,

  • lessons that may inform and improve your own collaboration,

  • how our philanthropy is working towards greater diversity, equity and inclusion.

This program will include short presentations, Q&A, a casual lunch, and opportunity (weather permitting) for a short walk around Hammonasset Beach State Park.
