Judy Pruden Historical Preservation Fund Now Accepting Applications




Judy Pruden Historical Preservation Fund
This memorial fund was opened by Judy’s husband, Mike Morgan. Judy was a long-term member of the Ukiah Planning Commission and over the past several decades was active in preserving the city’s history and historic buildings. This fund makes grants to community-based projects that involve the public (all ages) in the understanding and appreciation of Mendocino County’s history.

Previous grants have gone to Mendocino Study Club printing a walking historic Mendocino brochure; Kelley House Museum changing modular exhibits; Ukiah Main Street program printing historic downtown Ukiah walking tour brochure; and Friends of Observatory Park developing interpretive materials.

In 2017, the Community Foundation is welcoming proposals from Mendocino County organizations and public entities for small projects with a large and lasting impact.


· Historical publications and exhibits, marketing materials for historical tours, and historical information/plaques/interactive media;
· Small projects with large or lasting impact;
· Cost-sharing as demonstrated by additional funds and resources;
· Work-sharing as demonstrated by level of volunteer involvement;
· Historical preservation is aligned with the organization’s mission; and,
· Historical signage is fitting for the “sense of place.”
Total available funding: $4,500; Grant range: $500-$2,000

Deadline for Submission: January 31, 2017 by 12:00 pm (NOON)
