This week has been devoted to search for grants to help with the planning stages of the museum. So far I have found 4-5 opportunities I will be applying for. The first is for preservation of an Indiana structure and has a Dec. 1 deadline. The second is through the National Trust for Historic Preservation. There are two opportunities with Feb. 1 deadlines that I think we can apply for. I was disappointed to see that I just missed the NEH grants for planning. But, we can get a head start on next year's Aug. 17th deadline! Finally, I want to check out the World Monument Fund. I think Ahavath Scholom should be a World Monument and I hope the World Monument Fund does too!
