Lincoln Financial Foundation has awarded The Mark Twain House & Museum $25,000 to support education programs for Hartford students and teachers. The funds help make possible the Free Visit Program, which allows students to tour the landmark Mark Twain House and the museum’s exhibitions, and participate in interactive learning programs; creative writing programs for middle and high school students in which they learn the basic elements of fiction writing, practice storytelling, and exercise their creativity; innovative academic programs for Hartford schools that have been designed to meet their particular curricular needs; continuing education workshops for Hartford teachers; and free admission to the museum for Hartford teachers and school administrators.

Our thanks to Lincoln Financial Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Lincoln Financial Group established in 1962. Grants are made in the areas of arts, education, human services, and economic/workforce development. Learn more about the foundation at
