Recent Grant Awards from the Knight Foundation,
Florida Humanities, the Duke Energy Foundation
The Moses Roper project would not be possible without the support of recently awarded grants. Apalachicola Main Street was also just awarded a competitive grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation’s COVID-19 Relief Fund. The recent grant cycle was designed to provide relief for non-profits and to fund projects and initiatives that meet the Knight Foundation's community investment strategy to fund the arts, journalism, and/or to foster an informed and engaged community, as well as projects and initiatives promoting diversity, equity and inclusion or work being done in that space. The grant was awarded through the Community Foundation of North Florida, a non-profit that promotes and facilitates long-term charitable giving.
We also received a Community Project Grant from Florida Humanities. As the non-profit statewide partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities, Florida Humanities awards federal funds each year to local organizations to create a variety of free, humanities-rich programming to diverse communities across the state. These programs and resources seek to preserve Florida’s diverse history and heritage and to promote civic engagement and community dialogue.
In addition, we were honored to have received a grant from the Duke Energy Foundation. Among the Foundation's funding priorities are supporting projects that strengthen communities through impactful projects that focus on expanding cultural program access for under-served and diverse populations and supporting initiatives involving social justice and racial equity. These grants will cover the costs of a digital interactive kiosk and the graphic design and production of the exhibit panels.
