RRCHNM Joins Nonprofit Finance Fund Cohort

We are pleased to announce that the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media has been selected to join an Andrew W. Mellon Foundation-funded cohort of six digital humanities organizations in a three-year initiative focused on building financial resilience in the digital humanities. This initiative, managed by the Nonprofit Finance Fund, will be structured around helping all six DH organizations become more adaptable and financially resilient while staying true to our individual¬† missions. Since our founding in 1994, RRCHNM has been committed to open access and open source, but these commitments make it challenging to create a business model that provides sufficient resilience in a rapidly changing world. Through the support of this project, we look forward to finding new ways to continue our mission of democratizing access to historical information while also strengthening our financial model and becoming a more adaptable organization. We are also very excited to be part of a cohort that includes the Hathi Trust, the HBCU Library Alliance, Humanities Commons, Rhizome, and the South Asian American Digital Archive. The best ideas in the world come from collaborations among diverse groups of people who bring new ideas and perspectives to the table. We couldn’t be happier about being part of this cohort of such excellent organizations.
