The Cornish Community Initiative (CCI) was organized in 2019 to fund projects and programs that help maintain and enhance the quality of life in Cornish, New Hampshire. The CCI became officially established as a non profit with the state of NH in 2022 and is completing Federal 501c3 status. The Cornish Community Initiative strives to further programs in the arts, education, public affairs, community development, historic resources, the environment, recreation, and social services.

Our current major project is a proposal to the Town of Cornish as requested by the Library Trustees to develop the former Cornish General Store into the new Cornish Library and Community Center. Read more about this project and the work of the Town’s Library Exploratory Committee here. We are pleased that the town voted to accept this project.

Ongoing community activities also take place at the former Cornish General Store and around the Cornish community. Community events sponsored by CCI include puzzle swaps, pot lucks, a zero waste picnic in collaboration with the Stowell Free Library, community forums, Living a Sustainable Lifestyle Tea & Talks and game nights.
