Preserving Community Assets
Several years after the high school in Trumbull closed in 1998, the Trumbull Community Foundation Fund took the lead in redeveloping the school building into a busy community center. In July 2011, the Fund spearheaded a three-day celebration for the town’s 125th anniversary celebration, with the former school serving as a center point for activities. The effort involved more than 100 volunteers and drew more than 700 people to this town of just over 200.

NCF affiliated funds invested in dozens of community facilities and infrastructure projects. Whether it’s a new library, an historic opera house or a state-of-the-art media center, NCF affiliated funds are preserving our heritage and building for the future.
