Your business can play a role in highlighting the importance of preserving and restoring distinctive New Haven buildings.

By sponsoring New Haven Preservation Trust programs, you link your company’s name to the city’s rich architectural heritage, a valuable tool for reaching a community audience. 

In addition to advocacy for historic architectural and cultural structures, the Trust hosts educational events including tours, community lectures, and workshops. With the help of generous sponsors, the Trust can offer these programs to the widest possible audience.

There are many opportunities to sponsor the Trust’s programming:

  • Connecticut Historic Homes Rehabilitation Tax Credit Program Workshops help homeowners take advantage of tax incentives to maintain and rehabilitate their historic houses.

  • At the Trust’s popular Annual Meeting, members and friends celebrate the Trust’s past year in a distinctive setting that varies each year.

  • The Trust presents community lectures by dynamic speakers on topics of interest to the general public, usually one in spring and one in the fall.

  • The Trust produces four walking tours each June in conjunction with the International Festival of Arts and Ideas, an opportunity for sponsors to reach thousands of Festival participants.

  • The Community Heritage Date Plaque program offers elegant ceramic plaques to any building owner in New Haven, displaying the date of construction of the building. The date plaques are underwritten by sponsors to keep them affordable.

The benefits of sponsorship include your name and logo on event invitations and programs; event advertising in print, on the Trust’s website, and on community calendars; and visibility in the Trust’s newsletter and on Facebook.

Sponsorships typically range between $1,000 and $5,000 and are available year-round. Please contact The New Haven Preservation Trust to discuss possible opportunities and details at 203-562-5919, or
