Three New Hope non-profits to receive more than $80K in funding

New Hope Historical Society

Bowman’s Hill Wildflower Preserve, Bucks County Children’s Museum, and New Hope Historical Society will receive a total of $84,977 through the Covid-19 Cultural and Museum Preservation Grant Program (CARES).

The funding awards were announced one day after the Senate Democratic Policy Committee Hearing on Covid-19’s Impact on Arts, Cultural and Historic Institutions, during which organizations from across Pennsylvania shared the challenges they have faced and the critical need for state support.

Under the program, Bowman’s Hill Wildflower Preserve will receive $34,977, Bucks County Children’s Museum will receive $25,000, and New Hope Historical Society gets $25,000.

Other area organizations awarded funding include the James A. Michener Art Museum in Doylestown ($101,431) and Pearl S. Buck International in Perkasie ($25,000).

“At Monday’s Policy Committee Hearing, we heard about the continued struggles of the arts community during these unprecedented times,” said State Senator Steve Santarsiero. “These funding awards will benefit a diverse cross-section of my district’s cultural groups and museums, helping them to continue to enrich our community even as they face dramatic loss in revenue and fundraising.”
