Workshop on grant writing

The Midwest Art Conservation Center (formerly Upper Midwest
Conservation Association) Presents Workshops on Grant Writing for
Beginning and Advanced Conservation Projects

These two workshops are presented with the goal of coaching
participants through the grant application process to completion of
the actual application.

In the beginning level workshop, participants will learn where and
how to locate funding sources; how to understand conservation grant
protocol and the review process; how to conduct an internal review
to present your institution and collection as the best candidate for
funding; how to develop an achievable project; how to write a
practical proposal; how to write a realistic budget; options for
raising "matching funds," and what to do when you receive grant
funding.  The workshop instructor, an experienced grant writer, will
provide direct assistance on draft proposals both during and after
the workshop until the application is completed.  This workshop will
take place from 9:30 to 4:30 each day at the Landmark Center in
Saint Paul, Minnesota on April 3-4, 2006.

The advanced level workshop is a new addition to MACC's annual line
up. MACC staff will teach the first day of this two-day workshop,
and consultant Barbara Davis will teach the second day.  The
instructors will present a comprehensive workshop on grant-writing
for advanced conservation-related projects such as: HVAC System
upgrades; major storage renovations or additions, Object-by-Object
detailed surveys of collections; actual conservation treatments and
other large scale or large budget preservation and conservation
projects. The second day of the workshop taught by Barbara Davis
will concentrate on writing grant proposals to private funding
sources for matching funds. The goal of the workshop is for
participants to leave the session with a realistic and practical
understanding of advanced grant writing for large scale or large
budget preservation and conservation project proposals. Preservation
Services staff will then follow-up with participants who are
developing full grant applications.  This workshop will take place
from 9:30-4:30 at the St. Paul Public Library in St. Paul, Minnesota
on May 25-26, 2006.

Registration fees for these two-day workshops will be $235 for MACC
members and $295 for non-members.  Staff and volunteers from
institutions with a total operating budget below $50,000 per year
qualify for a reduced fee in the amount of $130 for MACC members and
$200 for non-members.  Fees for students (those currently enrolled
in Undergraduate or Graduate Study Programs, including interns and
fellows) will be $80 for each two-day workshop. MACC accepts credit
card payments.
