The Connecticut Historical Society is a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization and relies on contributions from individuals, foundations, businesses, and corporations to fund our operations and services. Since its founding in 1825, the Connecticut Historical Society has relied on the support of people who believe in the value of history and the importance of Connecticut's stories.  Your membership, donation, and volunteer efforts help the CHS fulfill its mission to inspire and foster a life-long interest in history through its exhibitions, programs, and collections.

Without you, we wouldn't be able to:

  • Care for our collection, our building, and our grounds.
  • Create award-winning exhibits and educational programs that engage and entertain.
  • Provide the knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff who greet you at the Front Desk, help you in the Research Center, lead your guided tour, care for our collection, develop our exhibits, and keep the CHS running!

Find out more about membership, volunteering, or leaving a legacy or donate now.

Memberships and donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
