The Dudley Foundation is pleased to announce that we have received financial support from the following sources in 2020:

The Dudley Farm is thankful to Connecticut Humanities for the $1510 grant to develop a self guided tour of The Dudley Farm. This tour is keyed to the aerial photograph provided by our volunteer, Robert Richard.

CT Humanities

The Guilford Savings Bank granted $500 to help us purchase and install roller shades in the Farmhouse. These will help protect the furnishings from damaging UV lighting.

The Guilford Foundation granted The Dudley Foundation $3100 to be used to help support the operations of The Dudley Farm during this period of lost income due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

And members and friends of The Dudley Foundation generously supported The Dudley Farm Museum by responding to The Great Give in May. More than $4200 was received which will be used to maintain operations. We are very grateful for all this support.


We are very happy to announce that we have been selected to receive a $2500 CARES Act Relief Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities as administered by Connecticut Humanities. The Dudley Foundation appreciates the affirmation and support that grant represents.

And it is with thanks that we announce the awarding of a $250 grant from Farm Credit East! This grant is specifically for our Farmers’ Market to assist with the costs associated with extra cleaning supplies, signage, and marketing strategies needed due to Covid-19 and CDC requirements. This allows us to promote the benefits of locally grown produce sold in an outside venue where vendors and customers can maintain the needed social distance. So please help us celebrate Saturday mornings at our Farmers’ Market.
