Ways to Give
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. The success of the Windsor Historical Society—past, present and future—depends on the generosity of those who support our mission. We invite you to join those supporters who have contributed to the Society’s annual fund which signifies support above and beyond dues for membership.

We welcome your support through tax-deductible outright gifts, bequests and other planned-gift agreements. Such gifts ensure that you and the things you care most about are long remembered. To discuss these or other giving opportunities, contact Christine Ermenc at 860/688-3813.

The Windsor Historical Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Donations are tax deductible.
