Community Investment Panelist
Community Investment Panelist

Community Investment Panelists play an integral part in fulfilling The Community Fund of Darien's mission. Approximately 60 volunteers are split into small groups to evaluate requests for funding. They spend around 20 hours of research and analysis over a three month period to ensure donations are allocated to only the "best of the best" local nonprofits addressing critical needs in the community. Volunteers also visit the nonprofits and often speak to their leadership teams as part of the vetting process. Recommendations are presented to the Community Investments Executive Committee for final determination of how available funds will be allocated each year. This is a great opportunity to come together with fellow residents, discuss community needs and learn about several nonprofits.
