WSGS Supportive Grants

The Washington State Genealogical Society has created an exciting opportunity for local societies: the WSGS
Supportive Grant Program. The grants, up to $250 each, are designed to support the inventive and creative efforts of
WSGS-member societies and organizations, as well as fill needs identified by the society. Two grants will be awarded in 2021.
We don't want to limit your creativity, so here are just a few projects that might be considered. Other examples are included in the Grant Guide.
  • Purchase equipment or expertise to conduct successful post-COVID society meetings.
  • Help with promotional printing expenses for an event to launch a newly organized society.
  • Purchase of new equipment to digitize unusual documents, thereby saving them from further deterioration.
  • Purchase of DNA kits for local member instructors to use as a public show and tell program, hoping to increase society membership.
Applications are open until October 31, 2021.  Announcement of grant winners will be made on November 11, 2021.
