I assume you have already looked at government agencies as sources for funding, but just in case -- the government agency on the national level that should be your first point of contact is IMLS. Look for the Grant Search box on their home page. http://www.imls.gov.

Subject: [APG] Grant funding for genealogy library

I know some of you work on historical, museum and library collections,
and hoped you could advise me about available grant funding for
starting a genealogical/historical collection. I'm working with a
director of a small museum to start a genealogy group for the
community. She was interested in expanding their genealogy section in
their library at the museum. We will need funding for a computer,
internet connection, and memberships to Ancestry.com and/or other
resources. We will also need help setting up a database site that can
be used to enter family information, upload photos and stories, etc.
and will probably have to pay a webmaster to design one for the
project. The funding would need to cover those kinds of expenses.

Any suggestions?

Micki
