Endow Hartford 21 Campaign

Endow Hartford 21 Campaign


The Endow Hartford 21 matching gift endowment program has initiated a 2nd phase, offering this amazing opportunity to a wider network of nonprofits in Greater Hartford and we are thrilled to be involved for another year of strengthening the foundation of our financial future!

The match is available until August 31, 2023 – but its impact will be felt for generations to come.

Thanks to the vision and leadership of the Zachs Family Foundation and the other matching donors, your gift of $250 or more to the Connecticut Science Center Endow Hartford 21 Fund at Hartford Foundation for Public Giving will be generously matched at 1:2 by Endow Hartford 21. For example, a gift of $1,000 will yield a $500 match.

Why is endowment important?

An endowment creates a long-term resource that helps us sustain our mission during periods of revenue fluctuations and adapt over time. To remain strong, organizations like the Connecticut Science Center need endowments to secure their future. While annual support remains crucial, as it is every year, we simultaneously recognize the need to build for our future.

With your help, the Connecticut Science Center will continue to provide engaging, interactive, and innovative experiences that explore our changing world through science and open the minds of future thinkers and inventors who will compete in the ever-expanding global marketplace for technology and innovation.
