How you can help
Nearly two centuries after the first organized preservation efforts at the Ancient Burying Ground, our work continues. The Ancient Burying Association is a 501(c)(3) whose activities include:
- Conservation, preservation, repair, and replication of gravestones at the Ancient Burying Ground.
- Improvement and upgrades at the site.
- Educational programs for school groups and the public.
- Publication of materials for visitors interested in touring the graveyard.
- Support of research that is published online through a variety of channels (reports, databases, websites, videos), making it globally accessible.
The funding for these ongoing activities comes from a wide variety of sources: government grants, philanthropical foundations, the City of Hartford, and private donations large and small.
Individual donations, large and small, go a long way in supporting the work of caring for the Ancient Burying Ground and creating educational tours, programs, and research.
Donations by check are accepted through the mail:
