  • Museums Galleries Scotland - Museums Recovery Fund

    Created: 09/02/2022

    Museums Galleries Scotland's Museums Recovery Fund is designed to be flexible, providing an element of financial support and security for those independent museums that are most at risk as a result of the ongoing uncertainty due to COVID. The fund can be used to support:

    • core operating costs to protect the minimum advised level of reserves* (equivalent of 3 months’ worth of operating costs). It is hoped that the fund will help to retain key staff posts and provide security that will allow for seasonal staff to be brought back and some frozen posts to be filled.
    • activity to recover visitor numbers and spend (whether new or returning) including marketing, special events and restart costs
    • activity that will assist the implementation of new business priorities emerging in response to the pandemic and which will increase resilience

    Who can apply?

    Any organisation that runs an independent Accredited Museum in Scotland. Local Authority, ALEO and University-run museums are not eligible for this fund. Non-accredited independent museums may also be eligible to apply. Check full guidelines on MGS website.
    When to apply?

    The fund will close at 17:00 on 11 March 2022.

    If you are a Non-accredited Museum that has not previously applied to MGS for funding, you will first have to submit an eligibility questionnaire by 18 February.

    How to apply?

    Register your intention via e-mail to[email protected] - a member of its grants team will get in touch to discuss your proposal. Full applications should be submitted via the MGS website.
