Full Cost Recovery: A training session via Zoom

Full Cost Recovery means securing funding for all the costs involved in running a museum activity or project.

During this crisis it’s going to be vital for museums to establish how much their overheads (staffing, premises etc) amount to when applying for grants in the future. This session will look at key aspects of Full Cost Recovery – what is it, why is it important, and how do we do it?

Join Richard Sved and Mairead O-Rourke to learn how to accurately plan your full cost recovery budget for your grant applications.
