Museum Secures Grant Aid For Conservation Lighting And Cases

We just got news today that the museum has been successful in securing grant aid from Waterford Leader Partnership. As some of our readers are aware, we are a voluntary non-profit organisation. We have to devote a lot of time to fundraising in order to ensure that the museum can maintain the high standards we set for ourselves. This particular grant aid was for 75% of the cost of any project successfully applied for. We are grateful to the WLP for looking on our application favourably. The grant aid will be spent on:

Museum / Conservation Standard Lighting: €4500
This ensures that the holdings within the museum are not damaged by Ultra Violet light. These lights also emit lower levels of heat than conventional bulbs.

5 Portable Conservation Cases: €4000
These cases are to a conservation standard in that they are made from inert materials that will not damage objects placed in them. As they are portable they will be useful for temporary and outreach exhibitions around the county.

1 Pop Up Display Banner: €270
This banner will be used at lectures and when we do outreach exhibitions etc.

Total Project Spend: €8770 (Grant Aid €6577)

The above figures are approximate. If anyone wishes to contribute towards the cost of the project they can donate money using Paypal to Waterford County Museum .
