Legends & Lore
Marker Grant Program

The William G. Pomeroy Foundation has partnered with the New York Folklore Society to launch a new grant program to promote cultural tourism and commemorate legends and folklore as part of New York’s history.

Folklore is an expression of our common past, yet it draws attention to what is unique about our community.  Passed from person to person over time, there is often historical truth at the heart of every legend.


Grants are available to 501(c)3 organizations and municipalities within New York State.

June 30, 2018 or October 31, 2018
