The Pomeroy Fund for NYS History is a new partnership between the William G. Pomeroy Foundation and the Museum Association of New York (MANY).
This second round of grant funding will provide general operating funds to 501(c)(3) history-related organizations in New York State with operating budgets of $150,000 or less with no fewer than 250 open hours in 2019. Open hours are defined as hours open to the public and/or delivering programs to members and/or to the general public.
Grants will be made on a sliding scale between $1,000 to $5,000 based on budget size. A total of $50,000 will be distributed.
Eighteen grants will be made in the following distribution:
Grant applications will be reviewed by a panel that will include MANY Board, MANY Staff and Pomeroy Foundation Staff.

Grants are available to all eligible organizations; an organization does not have to be a member of MANY to receive funding, nor will preference be given to MANY members. Municipalities are not eligible for funding.
