Grants ranging between $500 and $1,500 to Wyoming and Colorado nonprofit museums to assist in the preservation of collections and relics. Priority will be given to organizations that are smaller in size. Funding may be used to purchase archival supplies, equipment, and outside services. Preference will go to legitimate museums that have permanent collections on exhibit to the public.

Grant size typically ranges from $500 - $1,500

Grants are available to any museum with a permanent collection in Colorado and/or Wyoming that has current nonprofit status (501C3), and that is open to the public on a regular basis.

Grants are not available to individuals and cannot be used for endowments, routine building maintenance, events, or travel.

Funds are not available for exhibitions, education, salaries, general operating support, building expansions (unless for conservation labs), endowments (except for conservation), marketing, public relations, travel, or scholarships. At this time, the grant will not cover collections management expenses such as computers, digitizing projects, or collections photography.

Preference will go to legitimate museums that have permanent collections on exhibit to the public. (In other words, not to galleries, children's museums without collections, science museums without collections, corporate collections, etc. or "museums" that are without 501-C3 status.)

Grants are available annually and the Greenwood Fund gives priority to smaller museums.

Notification will be mid-November.

Money will be available by the end of the year.
