We wish to express our gratitude and appreciation to all of our past grantees for their efforts and friendship over the years.

Past Grantees



Sparks was an original program created and funded by Tauck Family Foundation that sought to give middle school students from low-income families the chance to step away from home and learn about new people and places in New England, Washington, DC, and California.

Each year, approximately 150 students had the opportunity to expand their historical and geographic knowledge; practice positive decision-making; gain a greater appreciation for diversity and difference; and develop positive, supportive relationships with peers and adults.

Youth Development Funding


Out-of-school time grants for youth development programs, most recently for middle and high school students from low-income families in Fairfield County, New Haven, Seattle and Rochester.

The Tauck Family Foundation’s Youth Development grants funded organizations and programs that provide high-quality experiential learning opportunities to youth during out-of-school-time hours and/or during the summer.

Community/Legacy Giving


Annual general operating support to organizations working in the Fairfield County community.

These grants supported a broad range of community organizations, primarily in Fairfield County, with annual unrestricted support.
