What Funders Want: A Workshop for History Organizations

Location: Washington’s Headquarters, Morristown NJ

The fundraising landscape can be a bit of a mystery. What is the difference between a private foundation and a family foundation? What about government grants? And how do corporations fit into the mix? Whether you have a great idea for an exhibit or you want to work with a neighborhood organization on an outreach project, if your building needs a new HVAC system or you want to develop a strategic plan, there could be funding out there to support these kinds of endeavors.
Join us on October 10 at Washington’s Headquarters to hear from some of New Jersey’s top funders about the types of projects they fund and what priorities they are currently pursuing. Learn about the different types of grant funding available to history organizations and how to begin to identify the right kind of funder for your project.
Panelists include Sara Cureton, Director, the New Jersey Historical Commission; Gigi Naglak, Director of Grants and Programs, the New Jersey Council for the Humanities; Sharnita Johnson, Program Director, Arts, the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation; William Byrnes, Vice President of Grants, The Kirby Foundation; and Nina Stack, CEO, the Council of New Jersey Grantmakers. The workshop will conclude with a networking lunch.
This conversation with funders is sponsored by the New Jersey Historical Commission, the Mid-Atlantic Regional Center for the Humanities, the New Jersey Historic Trust, and the New Jersey Council for the Humanities.
