The Pomeroy Fund for NYS History, a partnership between the William G. Pomeroy Foundation and the Museum Association of New York (MANY), have announced a new grant round providing $50,000 to assist 501(c)(3) history-related organizations with capital needs expenses in 2021.
In this fourth round of the Pomeroy Fund, a total of $50,000 will be distributed for capital needs in individual grants not to exceed $5,000. Grant requests will be considered for technology equipment, facility maintenance equipment, furnishings, major material purchases, renovations, refurbishments, remodeling and rehabilitation. If your organization received funding from the Pomeroy Fund for NYS History in 2020, you are eligible to apply, but preference will be given to those who have yet to receive funding.
Eligible organizations must be a history-related non-profit organization located in New York State and have an annual operating budget of $150,000 or less.
Pomeroy Fund applications will be accepted through Monday, March 22nd, via a portal on MANY’s website. Funding notifications and assistance grants will be issued in April 2021.
To begin an application or for more information, visit the Pomeroy Fund for NYS History webpage. Applications will be reviewed by a panel that includes MANY Board members, MANY staff and Pomeroy Foundation staff.
