    B1C 10 YR Color 2

    You make it possible — as participants, volunteers, partners, and donors — by working powerfully together to build one strong, diverse and inclusive community.

    The past 10 years have been transformative for the Greater Stamford community. Thanks to people like you, successfully integrating into our community isn’t just a dream. It’s a reality for thousands of immigrants who would otherwise be without vital support and opportunities when they need help the most.

    $ of $350,000

    With your continued partnership, the next 10 years hold even greater promise!
