The Volunteer Museum Grant Program provides assistance to volunteer-initiated community museums and Aboriginal cultural spaces (such as cultural centres and Keeping Places) with collections and displays in NSW.

Leg Up Grants are “quick response” grants for volunteers in volunteer managed museums and Aboriginal cultural spaces who require financial assistance to attend some form of skills development activity, or to bring such an activity into their museum.

To apply for a Leg Up Grant, an organisation must:

  • Be incorporated (or provide the details of an auspicing body that is incorporated, such as a local council) OR provide evidence of appropriate alternative governance structures (eg. S355 Committee, Trust, Company limited by guarantee, Local government authority, etc.)
  • Be not-for-profit
  • Be an established museum, museum network (such as an AMaGA chapter), or Aboriginal cultural space, with a displayed collection (not an archive or historical society without a museum function)
  • Be regularly open to the public (i.e. not open by appointment only)
  • Have no more than the equivalent of two full-time paid positions
  • Provide a written commitment to contribute 50% of the overall costs of the project, thereby matching the amount funded by the Leg Up Grant
  • Agree to abide by the terms and conditions of the grant
  • Not apply for a VM Grant if they have also applied for, or received, Create NSW funding for the same activity
  • Ensure that the project meets all current NSW Health Covid Safe Guidelines.
