Endow Hartford 21 Campaign

Endow Hartford 21 Campaign


The Endow Hartford 21 matching gift endowment program has initiated a third and final phase. We are thrilled to continue our involvement in this incredible initiative focused on establishing financial strength for organizations in Greater Hartford that do amazing work for the community.

Through December 31, 2024, matching funds are available for your gift of $250 or more to the Connecticut Science Center Endow Hartford 21 Fund at Hartford Foundation for Public Giving.

Thanks to the vision and leadership of the Zachs Family Foundation and the other matching donors, gifts will be matched 1:1 – that means your $250 gift will be doubled to $500!

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.
