Greenwich Historical Society to participate in fund-raising program

You can help the Greenwich Historical Society raise funds in this year’s installment of Fairfield County Gives on March 7.

Fairfield County Gives is designed to encourage online philanthropy through the message “Give where you live!” The program is sponsored by the Fairfield County Community Foundation and Bank of America.

For 24 hours, Fairfield County nonprofits will compete to raise money, win prizes for reaching specific donation levels and recruit new supporters. The overall goal of the flash fundraiser is to raise $1 million in 24 hours and the historical society will be taking part.

The Greenwich Historical Society is the town’s only organization exclusively focused on preserving Greenwich history in all its diversity. It continuously collects, catalogs and preserves thousands of historical documents and objects relating to life in Greenwich. It also recognizes and documents significant structures of all ages and types throughout town, assists residents in preservation efforts and serves as steward for Greenwich’s only National Historic Landmark, Bush-Holley House.

Each year, thousands of school children are able to study art and history art by learning the story of their town at the Bush-Holley House. The Historical Society also offers a variety of lectures, workshops, art and history exhibitions and programs throughout the year.

To support the Greenwich Historical Society during Fairfield County Gives, visitors may connect through the Historical Society’s website, Greenwichistory.org or visit the Greenwich Historical Society on Facebook.

Donations in any amount are welcome and all donors will receive a box of note cards featuring paintings from the Historical Society’s collection.
