Collections Care Grants

Deadline: 8/10/2022

This grant helps King County’s archivists, librarians, and historians protect the tangible objects that make up history so that the generations of today and tomorrow can continue to learn from them.

This grant supports the work of King County non-profit organizations by providing the funds necessary to assess, organize, catalog, clean, repair, document, digitize, and, ultimately, preserve heritage resources in King County. Find guidelines and application here.

Zoom workshops make a huge difference in how competitive your application is—each year, we find that the strongest applications come from people who have attended a workshop. 4Culture Heritage staff are available to answer questions, discuss project details, and review draft applications. Please register in advance. You will need a personal Zoom account in order to attend a workshop.

If you are unable to attend, a workshop recording will be available.
We are aware that the current guidelines of this program focus on collections preserved in Eurocentric museum and archive practices. We are exploring ideas to expand this program to be more inclusive of cultural materials, tools, and resources that are integral to maintaining intangible cultural practices. We are interested in hearing from communities and organizations in King County that work with this type of cultural preservation, to understand their needs for taking care of their resources. Please contact Megumi Nagata at  if you would like to be part of this conversation!
Free free to contact the Collections Care program manager Chieko Phillips at, 206-477-6811.
