The Plymouth Antiquarian Society is honored to announce that it is the recipient of a CARES Act grant for $2,500.00 from Mass Humanities, the state-based affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). Funding from Mass Humanities has been provided through the NEH as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act of 2020.
Mass Humanities awarded $572,500 to 123 humanities organizations across Massachusetts through the grant program, which provides operating support for museums, libraries, archives, and other nonprofit organizations during this unprecedented year. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, many institutions face an uncertain future due to lost admission and cancelled events.
The Antiquarian Society’s Board of Trustees, staff, and members extend their thanks to Mass Humanities and the National Endowment for the Humanities for this invaluable support. The grant will ensure that the Society can continue our mission of preserving and sharing local history through this challenging summer and beyond.
