Matching Gifts

The Baldacci Challenge

We are extremely grateful to David and Michelle Baldacci for their $1 million gift to The Mark Twain House & Museum. A portion of this gift has been set aside to fund a challenge grant, up to $100,000, encouraging our friends and supporters to make a donation. For each donation we receive during the challenge grant period, starting immediately until the end of our fiscal year, January 31, 2020, the Baldaccis will match each gift, dollar for dollar, up to $100,000.

Please help us meet this challenge! Along with David and Michelle Baldacci, you can help ensure the legacy of Mark Twain and his historic Hartford home for years to come.

Thank you for your gift.
