Giving


    
 

Since 1921, the Windsor Historical Society has collected objects that embody Windsor's past so we can share their stories with future generations.

 

As our collection and educational programs grow, so does the need to preserve, exhibit, and share these collected treasures and stories of our past and to preserve them for the future.

 

We invite you to help us meet this challenge by contributing to the Windsor Historical Society’s Annual Fund, which signifies support above and beyond dues for membership.  

 

Annual appeals in the past three years have funded:  

         Improved climate control in collection storage areas

         Acquisition of a locally made, flat-top, cherry high chest (c.1760)

         Continued publication of our popular newsletter

         Our first long-range plan

As a result of annual appeals and other fundraising initiatives over the past three years, we are proud to report that the Windsor Historical Society now raises one-third of our annual operating budget.  We are less constrained by the availability of endowment income than ever before.  This growing financial independence is a healthy response to these recessionary times.

 

The success of the Windsor Historical Society—past, present, and future—has depended and continues to depend on the generosity of those who support our mission.  

 

We welcome your support through tax-deductible outright gifts, bequests, and other planned gift agreements.  Such gifts are one way of ensuring that you and the things you care most about are long remembered.  

 

To discuss these or other giving opportunities, contact Christine Ermenc, Executive Director, at 860-688-3813 or cermenc@windsorhistoricalsociety.org.
