Funding

In addition to obtaining the National Endowment for the Humanities Grant, the Alexander Berkman and Emma Goldman Papers Project will need to look elsewhere to acquire additional funds. In order to find additional funds, the Berkman-Goldman Papers Project will look to public, private, national and state level grant opportunities. Diversifying funds will allow not only for more flexibility but for increased collaborative efforts.

The first grant, Publishing Historical Records, is a grant through the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC). The purpose of this grant is to "…for collecting, describing, preserving, compiling, editing, and publishing documentary source materials." The grant typically is awarded annually ranging from $20,000 to $250,000. As the Berkman-Goldman Papers Project is relatively small, a grant of $50,000 would be substantial. The grant would help to cover the technical costs of the project.

The second grant is a grant through the Gimprich Family Foundation, Inc. The independent foundation's purpose to to provide funds for projects related to civil liberties and for projects concerning Jewish heritage and culture. Historically, the foundation has given out awards ranging from $7,000 to $25,000. This grant could be put towards the development of content and interpretive work and research and design of web exhibits.

The third grant, thought the David & Minnie Berk Foundation, Inc., is a grant aimed at increasing awareness for civil liberties and due process of law. As much of the Berkman-Goldman Papers Project has to do with the complete disregard of both civil liberties and due process the grant would be well utilized. Additionally the grant is intended for program development in New York State. The grants have ranged between $2,000 and $44,000. The money would be put towards implementing project management.
