Sponsor an Event or Program

Every program and event that Hill-Stead presents over the course of a year is supported by the generosity of corporations or charitable foundations. Sponsorship of Hill-Stead events and programs increases visibility and showcases commitment to the Greater Hartford community. Through sponsorships, foundations further their mission and outreach, and businesses reward employees, cultivate new relationships, and build goodwill.
