GM Foundation Gives Grant To NIDL

101615GM3

The General Motors Foundation spent time Thursday morning, October 15th, cutting some big checks to a number of local organizations, as part of its 2015 Plant City Grants.  The NIDL was one of 13 local non-profit organizations selected to receive a monetary donation that for all totaled $130,000. The grants ranged anywhere from $4,000 to $50,000 each. Money was raised throughout the year by donations made by GM employees.  The Northeast Indiana Diversity Library received  $6,000 for program support.  For the NIDL it means helping with support of the digitization of materials in the archives.  The NIDL's current preservation projects through digitization includes:

  • the TROIS newsletter of Fort Wayne;
  • over 500 photos of a Revue at Tulisa's Up The Street in 1971;
  • over 100 photos of early GLO activities which was the city's first LGBT organization;
  • and reel-to-reel tapes of womens programs from Sister Space.
