: Start with your state; most have funding for the arts. But, understand that this year the funding has been hit hard.

Probably so. I'm undeterred though. Unique ideas have a way of squirting past the
rest and rise to the top.

Pennsylvania has not increased it's funding for the past 2 years (after several years of great strides forward). Also, there are very few public funds (state or federal) that will encompass a religious theme. Metaphysical, allegorical, yes; but not religious.

Understood. Especially federal. Am looking for private funding. If there is a better
time to promote Jewish history and understanding, I don't know when it would be.

: We also have a mid-atlantic regional council that funds both non-profits and individual artists. (There're plenty of $$ out there if you've got the time to reserach it.) And, ALWAYS, interface with the granting organization before submitting the grant. The more they get to know you, the better your chances of success.

Thanks for that advice. Frankly, I think they'll want to climb all over this. However,
I'm a little concerned about the $$ volume. It may take several grants to accomplish it. Off the top of my head, it may take 50K or more.

I'll report on the progress as it develops.

Thanks for your advice and resources.
