The Cornwall Historical Society is pleased to announce that it has received a CT Cultural Fund Operating Support Grant (CTCFOSG) from Connecticut Humanities (CTH), the statewide, nonprofit affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH).

Cornwall Historical Society was one of 624 organizations in Connecticut that was awarded CT Cultural Fund support totaling $16M from Connecticut Humanities. The CTCFOSG are part of $30.7M of support allocated to arts, humanities, and cultural nonprofits through Connecticut Humanities over the next two years by the CT General Assembly and approved by Governor Ned Lamont. The CTCFOSG will assist organizations as they recover from the pandemic and maintain and grow their ability to serve their community and the public.

Thank you CT Humanities for generously awarding us with a $10,300 general operating grant!

The Cornwall Historical Society relies on grants and donations to produce exhibitions, provide educational programs, share our collections with researchers around the world, and provide for the upkeep and care of our facilities.

This grant was administered by CT Humanities (CTH), with funding provided by the Connecticut State Department of Economic and Community Development/Connecticut Office of the Arts (COA) from the Connecticut State Legislature.
