The UMA is grateful for our the support that we receive from local and national grantmakers.
We are grateful for the ongoing support of Cuyahoga Arts & Culture and the Ohio Humanites Council for its Ohio Cares grant which we received during the Covid 19 crisis.
Recognizing the financial challenges Ohio cultural institutions are facing with the Corona Virus, the Ohio Humanities Council (OHC) created the OH CARES program and invited the Ukrainian Museum-Archives (UMA) to apply for a grant to offset losses in revenue. In late, June OHC awarded the UMA a $10,000 grant with the CARES program.
Because of the Virus, the UMA had to cancel our annual Easter Bazaar in March (it would have been our 26th) and our annual Kulala Summer Solstice Fest the last weekend of June. Together, these two events brought in about $40,000 in operating funds.
Although the UMA remains closed because of the global pandemic, we continue to have costs, maintaining environmental conditions to protect our collection, staff to oversee and responding remotely to requests for information, research materials, etc. We have also carefully re-opened our summer intern program (with proper social distancing) for young people interested in Ukrainian culture and history.
The OHC grant helps the UMA to partially offset the loss of revenue the Corona Virus counter-measures has forced on us. We are grateful to the staff at OHC who have been so helpful, friendly and accommodating. Thank you!
The UMA is a recipient of a Google Grants program award, which supports organizations sharing Google’s philosophy of community service to help the world in areas such as science and technology, education, global public health, the environment, youth
