More funds available through AIM Sustainability Grants

AIM Blog for independent museums and heritage sites

AIM is pleased to announce the re-launch of the AIM Sustainability Grants, funded by Esmee Fairbairn Foundation. The new programme has revised grant criteria and a larger amount of funding to be distributed to small and medium sized museums. The key changes are detailed below.

The Sustainability Grants were first launched in 2006. Since then over 240 museums have benefited from grants of over £600,000 to help them improve their organisational sustainability. An independent evaluation of the programme earlier this year, found that in many areas there were no similar funding schemes available to museums and that there were over 300 eligible AIM members who had yet to benefit from a grant, indicating considerable, ongoing need for support. As a result the Esmee Fairbairn Foundation not only agreed to renew the scheme for a further three years, but also increased the amount available for grants from £60,000 p.a. to £75,000 p.a.
