NFF Selects Cohort in Mellon-Funded Initiative to Advance Financial Resiliency in the Digital Humanities
Participant Applications Opened in January 2020.
Through generous support from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, NFF is excited to share the application results for its three-year initiative, Building Financial Resilience in the Digital Humanities. The following cohort of six organizations comes as the result of many several months of deliberation and a competitive application process:
- HBCU Library Alliance
- Humanities Commons
- Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media (CHNM)
- South Asian American Digital Archive (SAADA)
NFF will work with these six organizations over a three-year period, providing technical assistance to build organizational capacity with the goal of creating more adaptable organizations that carry on the important work of developing, preserving, and disseminating scholarly work in the humanities.
This integrated program will include convenings and group education; customized consulting to support planning for growth and adaptability; general operating support; and the opportunity to apply to the Foundation for change capital that will support business model shifts and build long-term resilience. In addition, the initiative is designed to disseminate learnings broadly to the field, sharing successes and challenges in real time, and offering models for organizations to promote financial strength and adaptability.
