Funding Applications

To apply for funding from Liberty Historic Railway, your 501(c)(3) organization must send us a written request. We do not have a specific format for this request, other than that it must be submitted in writing on your organization's letterhead.

This request for funding for your project should explain your organization's preservation plan, define the subject's historical value, describe the project's significance within the context of the preservation community at large, and detail the amount of funding required. You should also include copies of your organization's most recent annual financial statement (including income & expenses, plus balances on hand) and your IRS non-profit organization status letter.

When you have compiled the requisite materials, please attach them all to a single email to our chairman, Bill McKelvey, at

Please note that any applications for funding that do not contain all of the necessary components listed above will not be considered.
