The grant workshop is going great. We have had 22 participants over the last 3 weeks working on various funding projects. At the half way mark, we are more than half way to our goal of preparing 9 grants by the end of the program.
Preparing so many projects in such a short time is a real challenge. The museum has a number of good ideas that just need funding, but we keep coming up with more. We just completed an NEH planning grant that will pave the way to develop a sustainable standard for museum storage climate parameters. It just needs to get funded. Even if it doesn’t the work plan revealed some important priorities that need to be addressed, so very worth the time we invested in it.
At today’s session, the second to last, we finished up another grant and started working on the 6th. Whew!
Going to be a busy weekend.
