“The Project Support Fund is an amazing tool to support important, time crucial projects from the wide diversity of sites that integrate the Coalition." - Maria Alejandra Pavicich
Development Director, Memoria Abierta
The Coalition is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2016 Project Support Fund - Round 2 grants: Diversity Challenges (Northern Ireland); the Institute of Social Development (Sri Lanka); National Cambodian Heritage Museum & Killing Fields Memorial (U.S.); and the Sierra Leone Peace Museum (Sierra Leone). We received a record number of applications this round, with over two dozen members seeking funding for innovative new programs in their communities. In the past decade, the Coalition has awarded over $850,000 through the Fund, sparking action on contemporary issues throughout the world. We dedicate this Newsletter to looking at the impact this grant makes by revisiting recent projects and highlighting the four new grant recipients.
PSF and the Art of the Prototype
In 2014, the Museum of International Folk Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico received a PSF grant to engage young people in a media project in conjunction with their exhibit Let's Talk About This: Folk Artists Respond to HIV/AIDS. Over a year after the project's completion, the museum is still reaping the benefits of the award.  
The ABCs of the Project Support Fund
The Project Support Fund is a unique funding opportunity for which only members of the Coalition may apply. Twice yearly, the Coalition awards up to $10,000 in financial support to members eager to finance innovative projects at their institutions. The first Round of PSF grants for 2017 will open on September 1, 2016, with final applications due on November 1, 2016.
Memory Mapping in Guatemala
With a mission to dignify all victims of the Internal Armed Conflict in Guatemala (1960-1996), Memorial para la Concordia used their 2015 PSF grant to develop an interactive digital map of over 50 sites throughout the country that memorialize human rights abuses. Coordinator Julio Solórzano Foppa writes here about putting memory into action.
