UNION – The McHenry County Historical Society & Museum in Union was among 13 nonprofits receiving a combined $26,000 from Landmarks Illinois, a statewide historic preservation advocacy organization based in Chicago.
Through the Landmarks Illinois COVID-19 Organization Relief Grant Program, each nonprofit will receive a one-time $2,000 grant to use toward essential, organizational expenditures including employee payroll and rent and/or improvements to the organization’s digital platforms such as their websites that help to promote their mission and continue their programming. Landmarks Illinois created its COVID-19 Organization Relief Grant Program this spring to help community development, preservation and other partner nonprofits throughout the state during the coronavirus health crisis.
“On behalf of the Board of Directors of the McHenry County Historical Society I would like to thank Landmarks Illinois for its ongoing efforts to support historic preservation and education, as well as the local organizations that strive to make that mission a reality,” MCHS Administrator Kurt Begalka said. “This grant comes at a critical time in our organization’s 56-year history, as we meet the challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.”
