We wish the membership fees covered all of our expenses, especially the costs of maintaining and improving four historic properties. Sadly, these regular contributions and small donations don’t even begin to scratch the surface of preserving our artifacts or maintaining our old properties in their various states of repair.
Should you wish to make a donation, be assured that 100% of your contribution is tax-deductible, and will go toward the ongoing preservation activities of the Avon Historical Society, a registered 501(c)(3) charity. You may post a check made payable to the Avon Historical Society, P.O. Box 448, Avon, CT 06001. Alternatively, you may visit: www.gofundme.com/derrin
, or make a secure, online contribution via Paypal
(payable to our email address in the blue bar below). Your support is truly appreciated.
If you are a regular Amazon shopper, did you know that AmazonSmile lets you register the Avon Historical Society as your nominated charity? Your purchase price is still the same, but AmazonSmile remits 0.05% back to us on every purchase. It’s quick to register and very easy for you to shop as you normally do—with the added satisfaction of knowing you're helping us in a small way with every purchase. It all adds up over time, so click here

Many thoughtful donors have left a bequest in their estate. In the event you are interested in doing the same, please email the Society through the address in the blue bar below, and request to speak with our president. The president will reach out to you for a discreet conversation about your wishes and plans. Recent generous endowments from the William Yandow Estate Trust and other private contributors have allowed us to continue offering quality events; purchase supplies for our school programs; fund scholarships for history students in the benefactor’s name; and continue essential property repairs on our historic sites.
