2023 GrantS

The mission of the Holiday House Tour, organized by the Newcomers Club of New Canaan, is to give back to the community by supporting local 501(c) (3) charities and service organizations that are based in New Canaan and/or serve the town’s residents.

During a tour year, local 501(c)(3) organizations are invited to fill out a grant application and identify specific projects, programs, or initiatives that they wish to fund within a 12-month period after distribution. 

In 2023, we will partner with the New Canaan Community Foundation (NCCF) for our grant process which means there is a new timeline this year.  

Complete your application here today!
