Give back, give thanks!
'Tis the season of giving back and giving thanks. Make an impact with just one gift on more than 120 arts and cultural organizations - large and small - in Greater Hartford, including dozens of educational programs, arts and wellness initiatives and festivals that celebrate our diversity.
The arts have a major impact on improving health, academic performance, quality of life, employee engagement, and even the economy. By giving to the arts you're contributing to each of these sectors while helping keep the arts alive in Greater Hartford. But don't just take our word for it. Hear from our grantees directly:
“We at the Wadsworth Atheneum are exceedingly grateful for the funding we receive from the Greater Hartford Arts Council. Each year the award we receive enables us to meet vital needs that aren’t always covered by other revenue sources. This year, the museum’s successful grand reopening was made possible in part by the Arts Council, its dynamic team of do-gooders, and its generous donors. Without these incredible people, HARTford would just be Hartford. Thanks GHAC!” – Amanda Young, Director of Communications & Marketing, Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art
“Our shows are big – some of the best! And after 30 years of handwriting reservations (tens of thousands per year), our penmanship is pretty good too. But this year we couldn’t be more grateful for the support that GHAC provides because we are finally – yes finally – buying a ticketing system. It’ll be better for us and better for our audience and we couldn’t do it without GHAC general operating support. Thanks GHAC for all you do. We’re 30 years in this together.” – -Freddie McInerney, Director of Marketing and Communications, TheaterWorks
