Foundation / Corporation
Connecticut Historical Society and William G. Pomeroy Foundation
Grants to Connecticut nonprofit organizations and academic institutions, and municipalities for local commemoration plaques. Funding is intended to promote cultural tourism and recognize local folklore and legends as an important part of the community heritage and to promote tourism.
For selected applicants to the program, the Pomeroy Foundation’s grants cover the entire cost of a marker, pole, and shipping. The responsibility for the grantee is installation, maintenance, and the cost of a break-away pole, if required by their municipality.
“Folklore” encompasses many forms of informal, traditional culture. Markers should reflect important parts of community heritage, which can include local tales as well as traditions, crafts, celebrations, music, and people whose identity is important to the place. What are important parts of your community’s story that should be passed on? What matters is not so much that a tradition, story, or person be historically verifiable, but that it be locally meaningful.
