The Kew Historical Society Incorporated (KHS) acknowledges the generosity of Governments and Government institutions through grants programs that allow us to deliver programs and projects such as those described below.
Community Heritage Grant (National Library of Australia)
Following the success of the Significance Assessment in 2018, the National Library has awarded KHS the funding required for external consultants from Grimwade Conservation Services to develop a Preservation Needs Assessment of our collection. The date for submission of the final report has been extended by the Library to 31 March 2021 because of the impact of COVID-19 closures of the Museum and Gallery sector in Victoria.
Strengthening Communities Grants (City of Boroondara & Rotary Club of Balwyn)
KHS applied for and has been awarded two grants from the City of Boroondara and the Rotary Club of Balwyn. The first grant is to establish a permanent and purpose-designed Oral History Studio at the Kew Court House. The second grant is to fund a history of Kew describing significant items in the KHS collection. The finished product will be a pictorial history.
Triennial Operational Funding (City of Boroondara)
KHS has been awarded operational funding by the City of Boroondara. This funding will allow us to maintain and extend our core community activities including meetings, lectures, exhibitions, and publications. Funding will occur in each financial year.
