Hill-Stead’s Annual Fund Campaign

Throughout the year, we ask you to support Hill-Stead


Our Annual Fund is the single biggest portion of revenue for Hill-Stead Museum. It pays for the behind-the-scenes efforts and expenses that make Hill-Stead unique. The fund is critical to making financial ends meet, and it helps cover a wide range of costs, such as hefty electricity and insurance bills, staff salaries, and even small everyday items like office supplies.

In 2022, as we celebrated our 75th anniversary, we opened three exhibitions in our new state-of-the-art gallery, brought over 200 students from a variety of backgrounds to the museum for our STEAM summer program, invested in energy-efficient equipment for climate control, and increased accessibility to our collections by developing a new Google Arts and Culture page. Now anyone with Wi-Fi can learn about Hill-Stead. Your contributions to the Annual Fund have sustained us for the past 75 years, and with your continued support, we will thrive for 75 more!
