Volunteer Museum Grants – Round 2 Now Open

M&G NSW is pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for two grants from the Volunteer Museum Grant Program for 2022. These grants are designed to provide assistance to volunteer community museums and Aboriginal cultural spaces (such as cultural centres and Keeping Places) in NSW. Funded by the NSW Government through Create NSW and administered by Museums & Galleries of NSW, the program is designed to provide access to funding as well as experience in the grant application process.

Grants available in Round 2 are:

Small Grants
Up to $2,000

Small Grants are for short-term, collection-based projects. There are no set categories for funding and applications for a broad range of projects will be considered.

Applications close 11 September 2022

Project Development Grants 
$2,500 – $7,500
Project Development Grants allow community museums and Aboriginal cultural spaces to carry out strategic and innovative projects with mid to long term outcomes. The grants can also provide an opportunity to work productively with an appropriate consultant as a skill development opportunity.

Applications close 11 September 2022

For more information about the Volunteer Museum Grants program contact our Museums Coordinator via brend@mgnsw.org.au or Wed-Fri on 02 9339 9908. First-time applicants or those with limited grant-writing experience are encouraged to reach out for ongoing assistance.
