Thousands of our neighbors are living in poverty.
How we work
Each year Near & Far Aid has a positive impact on thousand of people in
Fairfield County through the grants we provide to more than 95 local agencies;
granting over $14,000,000 since the year 2000. Our all-volunteer Board
works diligently to ensure our donors’ dollars have maximum impact.
The hungry are fed; the homeless are sheltered.
The working poor are stabilized and on a path to self-sufficency.
The next generation will get a leg-up.
Near & Far Aid, an all-volunteer fundraising and fund granting organization, is dedicated to eliminating the causes and effects of poverty in Fairfield County. We accomplish our mission by finding and funding programs that provide life’s most basic necessities, as well as those that seek to achieve lasting change.
Near & Far Aid is a 501(c)(3) Not-For-Profit Organization.
