About this funder:



The Greenwood Fund is a donor-advised fund of The Denver Foundation that provides small grants for artifacts and collection care for museums in the Colorado and Wyoming area.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.


  • Grants are available to any museum with a permanent collection in Colorado and/or Wyoming that has current non-profit status (501C3) and that is open to the public on a regular basis.


  • Preference will go to legitimate museums that have permanent collections on exhibit to the public. (In other words, not to galleries, children's museums without collections, science museums without collections, corporate collections, etc. or "museums" that are without 501-C3 status.)
  • The Greenwood Fund gives priority to smaller museums.


  • Grants are not available to individuals and cannot be used for endowments, routine building maintenance, events, or travel. Funds can be used to purchase equipment, archival supplies, and outside services.
  • Funds are not available for exhibitions, education, salaries, general operating support, building expansions (unless for conservation labs), endowments (except for conservation), marketing, public relations, travel, or scholarships.
  • At this time, the grant will not cover collections management expenses such as computers, digitizing projects, or collections photography.
