Annual Giving

Dear Friend,

History is at the heart of what we do, and we take New Haven’s history to heart. Your support helps keep the New Haven Museum a vibrant center for exploring the people, places, events, and ideas that have shaped the Elm City. This summer we brought our collections catalog online, making art, artifacts, photos, and manuscripts accessible to you, 24/7. We add new items weekly, so visit often and watch your Facebook News Feed for our “object of the week” posts.  

In a first for the Museum, we added works by four living artists to the collections, and highlighted the achievements of women — in exhibition, conversation, and performance. As regional coordinator for Connecticut History Day, we serve as a resource to teachers and hundreds of students who compete at the local level, qualify for state, and advance to the National History Day Contest. We are also partnering with the New Haven Free Public Library to bring Elm City stories and collections to light.  

As not only this year, but this decade, draws to a close, we are ready to greet 2020 with excitement and anticipation. Take a long view of the past, and make your gift to history today. 

Wishing you many bright nights with family and friends in the year ahead,

Francis Jay Broderick
President, Board of Directors

Margaret Anne Tockarshewsky
Executive Director

Are you able to make an additional gift in support of our new Maritime gallery?
