New Grants for AARCH Society

AARCH Society is honored to announce the following new grants that have been received by our organization for 2023.

  • In December, the Maryland Heritage Areas Authority Financing Fund awarded a $35,000 grant. Frederick County will partner with AARCH Society to create an African American Historic Context Study of Frederick County. This work will expand on the completed Phase I, which involved a context statement and survey of Black resources in northern Frederick County. The proposed project will focus on identifying and researching historic and cultural themes to create a more comprehensive picture of the African American experience in Frederick County.
  • Also in December, Ausherman Family Foundation awarded AARCH Society $3,000 for the production of a documentary of Greenmount Cemetery, an African American cemetery that was located at the current site of Frederick Health.
  • In November, Maryland Humanities awarded AARCH Society a $10,000 SHINE grant for our work spotlighting the culture and history of Frederick County African Americans.
  • Also in November, FirstEnergy Foundation awarded AARCH Society $3,000 to support programming.
