ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Through thoughtful planning and effective grant writing, your organization can be competitive in the race for public and private funding to preserve cultural collections. This workshop will examine the planning process that funders want to see in place and the components that make a grant request compelling. With examples drawn from success stories at museums, historic sites, libraries, and archives, program participants will gain an understanding of how to effectively develop and implement a funding strategy to raise money for their collections.

The workshop will address:

§  Planning: Moving from a preservation needs assessment to a funding strategy

§  Potential funding sources: Triaging your time to focus on your best funding prospects

§  Writing the request: Anticipating the funder’s questions and answering them concisely

§  Evaluation: Incorporating the new standards
