Corporate Sponsorship Opportunities 2023-24

The Wilton Historical Society keeps our stories
alive while fostering the next generation of history makers. With approximately 4,000 annual visitors, WHS is a focal point for those who are curious and engaged in our community.

Sponsored Achievements in 2022

Last year our content reached over 220,000 people across social media, website, and in-person visitors, including at exhibitions like Lives and Landscapes: Art from the Permanent Collection, and events such as The Great Trains Holiday Show.

Goals for 2023

● Demonstrations by a blacksmith working at an original
● 1860’s forge and hearth cooking in a 1770’s tavern kitchen
● Fun and educational family events like a September “Back to School” Trivia Night

Special Projects and Additional Opportunities

Neighborhood Assistance Act Tax Credit Program






The Society participates annually in a program giving businesses a tax credit of 100% for contributions for approved energy conservation programs. With a minimum of $250 contribution, your business can subtract the donation amount from your CT state taxes.

This year’s project is new energy efficient roofs for the Lambert House and Train Station. These are two of the most historically significant buildings in Wilton, with the Lambert House featured on Wilton’s town crest, yet the cedar shingles on their roofs are splitting and water is leaking through. Your donations will provide new insulation to make the buildings more efficient, comfortable, and sustainable as well as new:
● shingles
● ice shields
● copper valleys
● cedar ridge cap
Make a donation before October to receive a tax credit equal to 100% of your donation.
