Become a Friend of Connecticut Explored!

Friends of Connecticut Explored provide important support for the continued publication of the magazine. We are a nonprofit organization with IRS 501(c)(3) status, meaning your gift is tax-deductible.

Friends contribute $100, $250, $500, $1,000 or more per year and receive a subscription plus a tax deduction for the amount of their gift over $20. Our 2014/2015 Friends Campaign is underway. Please give now.

Friends gifts of $100 or more received through 12/31/15 will be listed in the Spring 2016 issue.

Your support is more important than ever! Friends support also helps underwrite our discounted subscriptions for teachers, our free subscriptions to state History Day winners (students and their teachers), the statewide tour of our 10th anniversary There’s a Map for That! exhibition, and collaborative programming with our partners. Plus, Connecticut Explored’s lesson plans are a great way to introduce young people to a love of Connecticut history!
