The grant was used to purchase additional compactor storage shelving for the museum's Native American collection. Properly caring for items entrusted to the museum is a core part of any museum's mission.
The grant allowed for the purchase of the shelving as originally requested. The purpose of the grant was accomplished. As this was an internal infrastructure project, it was not specifically highlighted except in the museum newsletter. However, the Native American collection is a key element of the entire museum collection and any program or exhibit that includes items from this collection benefits from the success of this grant.
