A new challenge ahead! We have been approved for a grant from the Canada Cultural Spaces Fund Program: Specialized Equipment Component which can be as much as $20,000 if we can raise that much ourselves to match it for a total of $40,000. Otherwise they will match whatever amount we can raise.
This grant must be used between January 1, 2018 and March 31, 2018. (No pressure!)
This money will provide us with equipment for events and activities as well as specialized preservation supplies. Some items are chairs, big screen and projection equipment, computers for client use, digital recording equipment for oral history interviews, UV glass to preserve pictures, magazine display rack(s) and the list goes on. We will be counting on the support of our volunteers, members and donors to help us achieve this goal.
