You’ve got all your ducks in a row, your papers are all in order, and now your society is ready to tackle some of those initiatives…but the funding just isn’t going as far as you thought it would.
Help is available!
Many large organizations, including state genealogical societies, offer grants to smaller local genealogical and historical societies to help fund preservation, restoration, and other projects.
Join guests Julie Hill of Archives.com and Ron Darrah of member society Indiana Genealogical Society as they discuss the grant programs available from those two organizations* and others.
Listen to the archived broadcast of “Grants and Fundraising for Genealogy Societies” on the blogtalkradio My Society channel by FGS, or you can listen below:
*Archives.com has discontinued their grant program since the original broadcast. Links mentioned in the broadcast are no longer valid.
