Wilton Historical Society Receives CT Cultural Fund Operating Support Grant from CT Humanities

CT Humanities (CTH) recently awarded a generous $19,500.00 CT Cultural Fund Operating Support Grant to the Wilton Historical Society. This grant is designed to assist organizations as they recover from the pandemic and support their ability to serve their communities.

The Society is sincerely grateful for the CT Cultural Fund Grant, which will be used to support our organization to:

● Offer a wide variety of family friendly programs, events, and activities that blend learning with fun
● Design and create exhibitions that highlight pieces of Wilton History
● Partner with Wilton schools to provide learning opportunities to students
● Maintain historic preservation

“The Operating Support Grant provided by CT Humanities allows our staff to commit more resources to the important work we are already committed to doing,” Director Nick Foster says. “This money helps us think more creatively about the format of our educational programming and gives us the ability to provide more opportunities to local schools and other town organizations, ultimately building a stronger community network.”

Wilton Historical was one of 723 organizations in Connecticut receiving a CT Cultural Fund Operating Support Grant. Totaling more than $8.5M, these grants are part of a two-year, $30.7M investment in arts, humanities, and cultural nonprofits by the CT General Assembly and approved by Governor Ned Lamont.

This CT Cultural Fund Operating Support Grant is provided to the Wilton Historical Society from CT Humanities, with funding from the Connecticut State Department of Economic and Community Development/Connecticut Office of the Arts (COA) from the Connecticut State Legislature.
