The records consist entirely of final and annual progress reports made up of correspondence, reports, surveys, architectural
drawings, publications, specifications, print and slide photographic documentation, CD-ROMs, video, and floppy diskettes,
dating 1986-2011, submitted to the Getty Foundation by recipients of conservation grants for the purpose of documenting the
progress and results of their grant-funded projects.
Prior to the formation of the Getty Foundation, the professional staff of the Trust designed programs, encouraged and assessed
proposals, and sought to discover opportunities of exceptional promise that could advance a field or strengthen an institution.
Applications for funds from outside parties were evaluated by the professional staff, calling on outside expertise when required.
The staff then made recommendations to the President for funding under Trustee-approved appropriations. [From report "The
J. Paul Getty Trust Grant Program" presented to the Trustees at the April 27, 1980 meeting.] Grants in excess of $50,000 had
to be approved by the Trust Grant Committee.
