The Museums Programme supports museums looking to preserve, study and promote European Jewish history and culture. The Foundation aims to support museums in enabling visitors to appreciate and understand Jewish life and religious or cultural rituals, as well as Jewish history within the broader context of the regional or national historical narrative.

The Foundation is delighted to offer 2 new funding opportunities to support Jewish museums.

1. A Planning Grant to help at least 2 museums work together to develop a proposal for a new exhibition.

2. A Facilitation Grant that will enable one museum to borrow a current or previous exhibition.

Please click on the relevant grant below for more details. A museum can apply for one grant or both, provided it meets the criteria.

The Foundation also works closely with the Association of European Jewish Museums and they currently offer member institutions the opportunity to showcase their travelling exhibitions on the AEJM webpage – this offers some ideas for exhibitions that are potentially available for loan. Visit AEJM

The AEJM welcomes more online exhibitions – if you would like to showcase an exhibition, please email Anita Christensen at the AEJM directly.

The closing date for applications for both planning and facilitation grants is Monday 9th May at 5 pm UK time. You can expect to hear the outcome of your application in early August, 2016.

If you have any further questions, please contact Brigitte Sion.
