Dr. Leon Bailey Jr. Fund

A graduate of New York Theological Seminary, Dr. Leon Bailey Jr. has long admired the many donors who start endowments at The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven. Though their interests may be different, fund founders share a common bond with each other: They are all charitably-minded.

In that vein, Dr. Bailey, a member of The Foundation’s senior leadership team, was inspired to create a donor advised fund in 2017.

“I believe in The Community Foundation’s mission and product, and felt by establishing this endowed fund my engagement in this community could be strengthened.”

Dr. Bailey’s fund represents the melding of several critically important areas of his life: religion, employee benefits and social justice. It will support efforts to further various causes.

And, social justice — whatever that may look like in the future — will have a small voice of support.
