The Prosperity Foundation (TPF) is a community foundation designed to strengthen Connecticut’s Black communities in critical areas such as health, education, and economic development. TPF is an outgrowth of the Urban Prosperity Fund, which was created in New Haven, Connecticut in 2010 in order to promote philanthropy, prosperity and self-empowerment in the Black community. TPF is a permanent and endowed vehicle for addressing the Black community's needs, and bringing the community together around common interests. TPF has the features of a community foundation, including donor-advised funds, educational events, giving circles, and other forms of philanthropy. Through TPF, philanthropy is a path to grant making for organizations serving the community and a portal through which Connecticut’s Black community and other interested parties can connect and collectively contribute to improving conditions and opportunities for the community.
