The William G. Pomeroy Foundation and the Museum Association of New York (MANY) have partnered to create the Pomeroy Fund for NYS History, to offer grant assistance to history-related organizations in New York State with budgets under $100,000, that have been forced to close in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Pomeroy Fund for NYS History grants will range between $1,000 and $2,000 per organization. A total of $50,000 will be distributed. Applications are being accepted through Monday, April 27 and funds will be disbursed starting May 13.
Awarded funds can be used for the following purposes:
● to purchase computer hardware or software;
● to pay for utilities (e.g. electricity, heat, etc.);
● to gain internet access or expand bandwidth;
● to secure facilities and collections
Grant applications will be reviewed by a panel that will include MANY Board, MANY staff and Pomeroy Foundation staff. Grants are available to all qualified organizations; an organization does not have to be a member of MANY to receive funding, nor will preference be given to MANY members. Funding notifications and assistance grants will be issued in May.
