CFF Donation Process
Since our establishment in 1985, CFF has donated over $2 million dollars to 200+ organizations. Funded by the stores of the Village Automotive Group, the overall purpose of CFF is to give back to an area of New England which has helped us be a successful organization for the past 50+ years.
Donations and grants are spread across a wide variety of organizations, with a focus on the following categories: Arts & Cultural, Local Community, Education, Environmental, and Health & Wellness.
Our decision-making process starts with the individual members of the Ciccolo family. We do not have a traditional application process; each person works up a list of suggested contributions based upon their own ideas and beliefs. The individual lists are then brought to the entire family, which debates and finalizes the giving for the year. The donations are issued once a year in June.
