How to Start a

Fund with TPF

The Prosperity Foundation (TPF) was founded on the BOLD idea to create a comprehensive public charity, community foundation that exclusively focuses on supporting Black people and communities in Connecticut. TPF leverages existing philanthropic tools such as donor-advised funds and giving circles to bring Black people together to address issues that uniquely affect our communities. We encourage you to start a fund with TPF to support initiatives and programs relevant to our community.
