‘Darien Foundation’ Is the New Name for the Darien Technology & Community Foundation
Darien’s nonprofit sector just got a bit less confusing: The former “Darien Technology & Community Foundation” has changed its name to the simpler, “Darien Foundation.” That helps avoid confusing the organization with two others that have “Darien” and “Community” in their names — the Darien Community Association and the Community Fund of Darien. Here’s an announcement from the foundation about the name change and what the foundation does:
Every town should be so fortunate to have an organization like The Darien Foundation. Its mission is to provide grants for technology and capital projects to Darien’s Public Schools, emergency services and community organizations. Founded in 1998 as the Darien Technology Foundation then changing in 2007 to the Darien Technology & Community Foundation, it has been known informally for several years as The Darien Foundation.
