The fund was established to provide immediate support to smaller collections organizations in both Chicago and the Lowcountry. Museums and libraries with budgets up to $1 million and regionally focused collections as part of their missions will be eligible to apply for unrestricted grants up to $10,000.

Awards will support organizations with immediate lost revenue and non-recoverable expenses due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Organizations must hold 501(c)3 nonprofit public charity status from the IRS, and do not need to be current or former GDDF grantees.

Applications will be accepted starting April 15th through May 1st. To learn more and apply, visit:
