Sponsorships

For Individuals

There are often special needs of the Society that can be addressed by one-time gifts. Donations from individuals have recently restored the 1805 Latrobe Survey, paid for the cleaning and restoration of the 1759 Mary Brinckle painting, and commissioned new finials for a clock in the collection.

For Businesses

Businesses can support the New Castle Historical Society and local history by becoming a sponsor for one of our annual fundraising events: our winter fundraiser, spring garden party or fall annual appeal campaign party.

The fireplace project was funded in part by Port to Port International of Wilmington, Delaware.

Upcoming projects that are ideal for corporate support include:
