Thousands of our neighbors are living in poverty.
How we work
Each year Near & Far Aid makes a positive impact on thousand of people in
Fairfield County by granting over $1 million to the best local agencies that are targeting poverty and changing lives.
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.
