City of Stamford
Stamford is Connecticut’s third largest city with a population of over 129,000, which is expected to become the second largest city in the state by 2019. Stamford has an impressive number of corporate headquarters, three of which are 2018 Fortune 500 companies, and eight are Fortune 1000. The dense number of corporate headquarters is unrivaled in the state, an incredibly uncommon achievement for a city of its size. Stamford is a city rich in cultural diversity that features a rapidly growing tech startup community, a strong healthcare system, top-tier schools, an unemployment rate well below the federal and state level, and residential options for all ages and income levels.
he Stamford Rotary Trust Fund was established in 1961 by The Board of Directors of the Rotary Club of Stamford for exclusively educational, charitable, scientific and literary purposes. Board of trustees is comprised of the past 5 presidents of the Stamford Rotary Club that are available to serve. Communities served by the Trust Fund include Stamford, Greenwich, Darien and New Canaan.
The Rotary Club of Stamford is an organization of local neighbors, friends and community leaders dedicated to creating positive, lasting change in our communities. Adhering to the Rotary International motto “Service Above Self” the Rotary Club of Stamford strives to be an active participant in improving the health, welfare and well-being of people in our communities and around the world.
Spread Music Now
SpreadMusicNow funds music education charities that are committed to the success of individual students over an extended period of time. We feel the quickest way to support these organizations is to forego the administrative and procedural obligations associated with running a 501(c)(3) entity and employ a structure that gives us flexibility, transparency and the ability to serve our mission as efficiently as possible.
Founded by former Connecticut State Representative Christel Truglia in 1996, the Thumbelina Fund is a donor-advised fund of the Fairfield County Community Foundation that aims to meet the special needs of Stamford’s children. Whether it heled to purchase a prom dress for an underprivileged girl, build a playground at a local public housing complex or send promising students to a leadership conference, the Truglia Thumbelina Fund has added much-needed wonder, adventure, and joy to countless childhoods throughout Stamford.
