Endowment for humanities consultants for exhibits and programming.

We want to capitalize on our county's bicentennial on March 26, 2004, and open the new Jefferson County History Center, a place where people can research the past, discuss the present, and plan for the future of our rural Pennsylvania county. We request a grant of $100,000: $50,000 that will be matched by a $100,000 Lumber Heritage Regional grant to partially fund our two main exhibits, - Living on the Land and Some Things in Common; and $50,000 to establish an Endowment for future humanities programming. During the period of this grant, we expect to raise $22,500 in county contributions and $27,500 in non-federal grant sources to match the Endowment portion. We will use the exhibit portion in year one, and the 5% annual expendable Endowment income in year two to contract with an historian to work with us to develop a long range plan for research and exhibitis, and in year three to work with university and school personnel to develop a student-oriented web site that correlates with PA Civics Education Standards and local curriculums.
