Dear Friends,

Mindful that none of us need another long email to read, I will this time be brief.

Hill-Stead has responded to the challenges of 2020 with adaptability and open-mindedness, keeping its grounds open to the public despite widespread closures. And our beloved Museum became much more than a place of refuge when we brought live experiences of art back into people’s lives with From the Porch. Since early summer, this incredible initiative united a diverse and dynamic group of partners across the performing arts sphere and brought an audience of more than 2,000 to the Museum’s front lawn.

As a result, our community is stronger and more vital than ever. Now, entering Q4, we invite you to give back to the place that’s been there for you throughout the pandemic.

As we embark on this Annual Fund effort, I hope you will take a close read at our fall newsletter and be inspired to participate in the 2020 campaign.

Every gift matters greatly to us, helping carry forward Hill-Stead’s mission in the best possible way during these trying times. I ask humbly that you join me in this effort.


If you already made your gift, THANK YOU!

My deepest gratitude,
