Honoring Chautauqua’s Legacy
Named for the year of the Institution’s founding, leadership gifts by members of the 1874 Society are critical to facilitating the educational, religious, artistic, and recreational programming that honors the founding vision. These gifts ensure that the Chautauqua experience continues to be enriching and revitalizing for every visitor to Chautauqua, whether they come for a season, a week, or an afternoon.
