Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $3,000 and in-kind donations of materials to USA and Territories nonprofit museums and libraries to exhibit and preserve collections. Funding is intended to preserve collections, promote equity, diversity, and inclusion, increase use of glazing techniques, and encourage the involvement of conservators in museum and library collection projects. In addition to a cash award, applicants will also receive a donation of Optium Museum Acrylic® or UltraVue® Laminated Glass.

Tru Vue, Inc. has partnered with the Foundation for Advancement in Conservation to offer grants to support projects in glazing applications for preservation and exhibition of museum and library collections.

Funds are to help defray direct project costs, including contract workers, display fabrication, supplies, and publicity. Salary and benefit expenses of full-time conservators on staff are not eligible for funding, but may be included in the overall budget to show institutional support for the project.

Criteria for Review:

  • Rationale for support (demonstrated conservation goals, rather than collection management or maintenance)
  • Feasibility of project (project support and appropriate use of Optium Museum Acrylic® or UltraVue® Laminated Glass products) and project significance
  • Level of innovation in use of Optium Museum Acrylic® or UltraVue® Laminated Glass products
  • Publicity proposed for project to help raise awareness of conservation, including online efforts

Additionally, preference may be given to projects that meet one or more of the following criteria:

  • Promote diversity, equity, and inclusion
  • Highlight the role of conservation and/or conservators
  • Institutions that have not received funding from FAIC in the past three years.
