State Rep. John Galloway, D-Bucks, announced Wednesday the Margaret R. Grundy Memorial Museum received a $4,000 grant from the The Pennsylvania Historical & Museum Commission (PHMC)
“This grant money is well deserved,” Galloway said. “The museum reminds us both of Bucks County’s rich historical past and the legacy of a great public servant — Senator Joseph R. Grundy — who, through his philanthropic foundation, continues improve the lives of many in the area.”
The program provides funding support for commonwealth museums and official county historical societies that are not directly supported by other state agencies operating funding support initiatives.
Grant amounts are determined employing a calculation dependent upon on a percentage of the eligible museum’s previous year’s operating budget. The maximum any museum could receive is $40,000. All official county historical societies receive a $4,000 minimum grant.
The Margaret R. Grundy Memorial Museum is named after the sister of the late Sen. Grundy. The museum brings to life the late Victorian era in which the Grundys lived.
The Grundy Foundation maintains and operates the senator’s familial home as a museum; maintains and operates a community library; and makes charitable contributions to nonprofit organizations, with a particular interest to those in Bristol Borough.
