In 2014 The Chamber recognized that many local residents wanted to support the efforts that the Chamber was enacting on behalf of the community at large. However, no direct outlet existed to support this generosity. As such the Chamber employed the law firm of Whitman Breed Abbott & Morgan to guide us through the process of creating a 501(c)(3) which can accept tax  deductible donation. To date these funds have been used to support the Holiday Lights effort as well as the Pop Up Park. The Foundation is led by a Board of Directors comprised former New Canaan Chamber of Commerce Board Presidents.

Holiday Lights

We Need Your Support!

We need the support from the residents of New Canaan to make sure the downtown Holiday Lights reflect the warmth of the holiday season. The Chamber of Commerce does not receive financial support from the town budget and relies solely on the generosity of the residents and merchants in town. Your contribution would be greatly appreciated!
