2015 Preservation Workshops

Saving Your Story: Grant Workshops

Communities often have a variety of needs when it comes to saving their unique stories. Join us for these co-presented workshops to learn more about programs available to help. The Kansas Historical Society will present information on the Heritage Trust Fund grant program. The Kansas Humanities Council will discuss grants for documentary films, exhibitions, oral history projects, photo/artifact preservation projects, and more. The Kansas Creative Arts Industries Commission will explain the funding resources they administer to promote, support, and expand the creative industries in Kansas. Kansas Department of Commerce staff will present information on the Community Service Tax Credit program, which allows nonprofit organizations a way to improve their ability to undertake major capital fund-raising drives for a variety of community projects.
