Endowment for humanities staff salaries, interpretive exhibitions, and humanities programs, as well as fundraising costs.

The New Bedford Whaling Museum seeks a $500,000 NEH Challenge Grant, to be matched by $1.5 million in new matching funding. The $2 million will provide $40,000 ($10,000 per year for four years) in direct expenditures for fundraising staff during the capital campaign. The remaining $1,960,00 million will be allocated to create a new restricted humanities endowment, with annual disbursements funding humanities staff salaries, interpretation and exhibitions, and humanities programming. The new humanities endowment will build the New Bedford Whaling Museum's capacity for long-term support while providing predictable, sustainable funding for Strategic Plan priorities for long-term growth -- with particular emphasis on growth and enhancement in humanities exhibitions, interpretation, and high-quality programming for diverse public audiences.
