We are a nonprofit organization with IRS 501(c)(3) status, meaning your gift is tax-deductible.
Two ways to Donate to Connecticut Explored, and giving to Grating the Nutmeg:
Friends of Connecticut Explored provide important annual support for the continued publication of the magazine and for our educational initiatives.
Friends contribute $100, $250, $500, $1,000 or more per year and may opt to receive a full tax deduction or to include a subscription plus a tax deduction for the amount of their gift over $25.
Friends gifts received through 12/31/23 appear on our online donor roll and will be listed in the Spring 2024 issue. Gifts donated after 1/1/2024 will be listed in the Spring 2025 issue.
Friends support also helps underwrite our discounted subscriptions for teachers and students, our free subscriptions to state History Day winners (students and their teachers), the development of social studies resources for students in K-12, and collaborative programming with our partners.
If you prefer to send a check in the amount of your donation, please address it to Friends of Connecticut Explored, c/o Katherine Hermes, Department of History, Central Connecticut State University, 1615 Stanley St., New Britain, CT 06050.
2) Help Endow Connecticut Explored through Endow Hartford 21!
The 1:2 match seeks to inspire donors to give generously to support the long-term future of the organizations they love.
BUILD STRENGTH AND STABILITY
Thanks to the vision and leadership of the Zachs Family Foundation and the other matching donors, we have an opportunity like no other to begin that journey. We hope you will join us.
WHY IS ENDOWMENT IMPORTANT?
Organizations need endowments to secure their future. An endowment creates a long-term resource that helps them sustain their missions during periods of revenue fluctuations.
MAKE YOUR ENDOWMENT GIFT
Any gift between $250 to $10,000 to Connecticut Explored will be matched 1:2 by Endow Hartford 21. For example, a gift of $1,000 will yield a $500 match.
STEP UP NOW, HELP GENERATIONS TO COME
The match is available between September 1, 2022 and August 31, 2023 – but its impact will last forever.
TOWARDS OUR ENDOW HARTFORD 21 FUND
If you prefer to send a check towards the endowment, matching funds are still available. Just follow the instructions here.
