What is Give Local 2016?   

Give Local Greater Waterbury & Litchfield Hills, hosted by the Connecticut Community Foundation (CCF), is the local CT campaign that is held as part of the Give Local America online community giving event to encourage donors to lend their support to the nonprofit organizations such as ours, that work every day to make our communities stronger.

How Does it Work?

Between 7 AM Tuesday, May 3 to 7PM Wednesday May 4 you can go online and make a tax-deductible donation* to the Alliance Française of Northwestern CT.  In the coming days, we’ll provide you by email with a direct link to our profile page. The minimum donation is $10 – there is no maximum amount.  We cannot accept checks or cash donations. All event-related donations must be made through during that 36-hour period. In the coming days, we’ll provide you with a direct link to our profile page. The minimum donation is $10 and there is no maximum amount.

We will receive bonus funds for every dollar donated during this 36-hour campaign from the Connecticut Community Foundation (CCF) and their generous Give Local sponsors.



We are delighted to announce that a generous donor has pledged up to $250 in matching funds for donations made online to the Alliance Française of NW CT during this 36-hour Give Local campaign.

That means, if 25 people go on-line during this campaign and donate just $10, we’ll receive this $250 match.

That’s in addition to any bonus funds provided by the Connecticut Community Foundation!
