The Connecticut Council for Philanthropy (CCP) is an association of grantmakers committed to promoting and supporting effective philanthropy for the public good. CCP members granted more than $1.2 billion in 2016 from assets of more than $8.2 billion.
CCP membership is open to grantmakers, grantmaking foundations (private, corporate, community), business and corporate giving programs, bank trusts, donor-advised funds, individual philanthropists and those serving the philanthropic sector.
These organizations impact lives and the greater community through the organizations and programs they support, in areas such as education, health, scientific research, arts and culture, human services, religious organizations and the environment. Some funders also make grants to individuals, such as through scholarships or disaster relief.
