The New Winston Museum is pleased to announce it has received a $25,000 grant from the Frances and Jesse Temple Fund of the Winston-Salem Foundation.
These funds will support the creation of an interpretive plan and fund the development plans for the museum.
The New Winston Museum will work with nationally renowned museum professionals, R&L Consulting of Asheville, NC to develop these critical planning documents.
An interpretive plan is an important step in the planning and design process for informal learning-based institutions like museums, where interpretation is used to communicate messages, stories, information and experiences.
A fund development plan will identify opportunities to help ensure the museum’s long-term sustainability.
“As we enter the third year of New Winston Museum’s life as Winston-Salem and Forsyth County’s community history museum, we are taking careful steps to ensure smart growth and long term sustainability,” said Katherine Foster, executive director of New Winston Museum. “This generous grant from the Frances and Jesse Temple Fund of the Winston-Salem Foundation is an invaluable vote of confidence for the future of New Winston Museum.”
New Winston Museum’s mission is to preserve, promote, and present the dynamic history and diverse stories of the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County community through education and collaboration. New Winston Museum’s focus is on the history since the creation of Forsyth County and our programs emphasize the role of history in shaping our diverse stories.
New Winston Museum is a 501c3 nonprofit organization.
Museum hours are Monday-Friday from 12 p.m. – 5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. -2 p.m. Admission is free and donations are gladly accepted.
