RE: [oneroom] Grants
- Here are some of the grants we have received to help us with building,
collection, and programming projects for the Coralville School.
Iowa Country School Grant
Iowa HRDP Grant
Iowa Historic Site Preservation Grant
All of these at www.iowahistory.org
Grant through our local Pilot Club
State Questers Grant-There is an international grant as well. They have to
be written by a Questers group who is willing to be involved with your
project but they can be for several thousand dollars and I would recommend
getting a Questers group involved with your school if you have a local
group. They are an asset.
Grant from Gannett Foundation-I believe these are open to places with a
Gannett owned newspaper.
We also applied but didn't get a grant from
History Channel's Save Our History Program
We also recently applied so don't know result for a grant from a nearby
casino which is in the next county over.

We were talking about grants at the Iowa workshop. As the first step
to getting a grant is knowing about it, I'd like to kick off a round
of posts were you just list any grants you've gotten and who gave
them so others on the list know to apply.
Some people didn't know that you can request copies of other
people's successful grant applications from most grant giving
organizations to get an idea of what they did that you didn't. Also,
you can volunteer to read grants for organizations (as long as you
aren't also applying that year) and get a real feeling for what they
are looking for.
Finally, I'd like to let you all know about an upcoming grants
class. I took this workshop a couple of years ago and found it
pricey, but of great value and you come away with a lot for the
money. I'll post it in the next message because it is kind of big,
FYI. Hit Delete if you are not interested.
