The Connecticut Association for the Gifted (CAG), founded in 1969, is the pre-eminent parent, teacher and school resource and legislative advocate for Connecticut's talented and high-ability students. CAG provides parents with information, resources and programs to benefit their talented children; educators with high-quality professional development; and Boards of Education with the tools to support talented students. CAG is committed to increasing public awareness statewide that talented and high-ability children exist in all socio-economic, ethnic, and racial groups. CAG also is interested in extending its reach to traditionally underserved populations.
CAG must better engage its membership, build mission partnerships and find additional ways to support parents, students and educators while building an infrastructure to support these new activities. As a non-profit that receives no government funding, Connecticut Association for the Gifted has traditionally relied on membership fees, event proceeds and limited private donations to meet operating expenses. To generate support for new and existing initiatives, CAG is seeking a board member experienced in Fund Development.
