The Museum Association of New York (MANY) has partnered with the William G. Pomeroy Foundation for a fifth round of the Pomeroy Fund for NYS History, providing a total of $100,000 for salary support/hourly wages to bring back or hire museum educators.
This round of funding offers grants in amounts up to and including $5,000 for salary support/hourly wages to bring back or hire museum educators who will plan and deliver interpretative educational programs.
These may include:
- school programs,
- teen programs,
- early childhood programs,
- family days,
- programs for older adults,
- programs for new Americans,
- or targeted, audience-specific programs identified in the grant application.
Funding should not be used as a substitute for existing (budgeted) staff salaries and hours, but can be used to increase staff hours for the aforementioned purposes.
Funds will be granted to museums for education staff who will offer in-person programming, but programs may include a virtual component.
Open to eligible 501c3 history-related organizations in New York State with budgets up to $250,000. Town historians and municipally owned historical societies are ineligible. Applicants do not need to be members of MANY to apply.
