Endow Hartford 21

Because Friends Like You Believe in the Future of Greater Hartford

Endow Hartford 21 is a matching gift endowment program, initiated by the Zachs family and supported by other lead donors who believe in the nonprofit community across Greater Hartford.  The 1:2 match seeks to inspire donors to give generously to support the long-term future of the organizations they love.


Build Strength and Stability

The challenges of the past few years have made all nonprofits keenly aware of the need to plan for the unexpected.  Thanks to the vision and leadership of the Zachs Family Foundation and the other matching donors, we have an opportunity like no other to build our endowment fund.  An endowment creates a long-term resource that helps us sustain our mission during periods of revenue fluctuations.  Now is the time for us to build for our future.  Will you help us?


Make Your Endowment Gift Go Farther with a Match

You can help secure the future of The Mark Twain House & Museum by making a donation to Endow Hartford 21.  Any gift is welcome, but if your gift is between $250 and $10,000, it will be matched 50%!


Step Up Now, Help Twain’s Legacy for Years to Come

The match is available until August 31, 2023 – but your impact will last forever.
