Founded by Black parents, clergy, and other community volunteers in 1938, named after George Washington Carver who was still alive at the time, the Carver Foundation of Norwalk takes Black History passionately. Carver has always been led by a Black CEO.
Carver proudly exalts Charity Navigator’s 4-Star rating of our work, and we benefit continuously from Charity Navigator’s inspired promotion of volunteerism and philanthropy. Volunteers continue to lead and support the Carver mission “to close opportunity gaps for all children and to ensure they graduate high school on time and are ready for college and careers.”
Carver children and youth work hard and succeed at benefiting from the quality expanded learning opportunities that Carver brings to their learning environments – before school, after-school, and the summer – to support their academic, social-emotional, and physical well-being.
