Mission
The Killingworth Community Fund (KCF) at the Community Foundation of Middlesex County is dedicated to increasing the impact of local philanthropy in order to enhance the quality of life for the citizens and the community of Killingworth, Connecticut.

Individuals or organizations making gifts or bequests to the Killingworth Community Fund at the Community Foundation of Middlesex County can be assured they have made a contribution that will be of enduring benefit to the town. The Community Foundation of Middlesex County is a collection of restricted and unrestricted "Funds" whose use is determined by individual donors, Fund Committees, and the Board of Directors. These Funds are pooled for investment purposes, accounted for separately, and annually provide income to make grants to charitable organizations. Community Foundation staff monitor grants to assure accountability. All gifts to the Killingworth Community Fund at the Community Foundation of Middlesex County are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.

Originally established in 2007 as The Killingworth Foundation, it served the community for ten years, supporting essential services and programs throughout the community. In 2017, the dedicated volunteers of TKF partnered with the Community Foundation of Middlesex County (CFMC) to establish the Killingworth Community Fund, a geographic affiliate Fund administered and managed by the Community Foundation. This partnership ensures the KCF Committee volunteers can continue to focus on supporting the community they care deeply about through fund raising and grant making.

Good citizenship and organized philanthropy are both based on the ancient tradition of neighbors helping neighbors. The Killingworth Community Fund at the Community Foundation of Middlesex County offers individuals and businesses a way to act in that tradition with confidence and efficacy.
