We are pleased to announce the receipt of a Humanities Texas Relief Grant which will provide much needed funds to help keep the museum operational and continue our mission to preserve and promote the history of Salado and the pioneers who settled here.
Humanities Texas has awarded over $1.1 million to 198 Texas nonprofits that have suffered losses as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Recipients include museums, libraries, preservation organizations and heritage and cultural centers, among many other organizations whose historical and cultural programs have significant impact within their communities.
“We are fortunate to have the opportunity to provide critical support to so many organizations across the state,” says Eric Lupfer, Humanities Texas Executive Director. “Looking ahead, we will continue to seek ways to assist Texas cultural and educational institutions in surviving this crisis.”
Funding for these grants has been provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act economic stabilization plan.
We are also very thankful for the generous financial support we have received, and continue to receive, from the many friends of the museum in Salado,across the state and beyond.
