The Museum Association of New York (MANY) has announced ten, “Tell Your Story and Make Your Case” regional grant writing workshops across New York State this fall. These workshops are being produced as a program of the Pomeroy Fund for NYS History with support from the New York State Council on the Arts.
In these participatory workshops, MANY Executive Director Erika Sanger will guide attendees through the grant writing process to build skills and develop insights, including analyzing guidelines, outlining narratives, writing statements of need, and developing budgets. Sanger will share examples of successfully funded grant narratives, hints for streamlining work processes, and designing visually appealing attachments.
Each workshop will be limited to 20 people with priority given to employees and volunteers of 501(c)(3) designated museums and history organizations in New York State with operating budgets of $150,000 or less. There is no charge for the workshop but participants must apply and meet the requirements. Applications are currently being accepted by MANY. Qualifying applicants will be notified of acceptance status before Friday, July 30th, 2021.
