Grants

Digital preservation initiatives can often qualify for grant funding as they increase access to primary source evidence, preserve critical pieces of our shared history and provide experiences to the general public who are unable to physically visit museums or archives.

We want to help you save history in whatever way we can, so we’ve pulled together a list of grants that might relate to your project. Take a look and let us know if we can help get you started with a quote to include in your application.
