Management & Administration
Successful fundraising campaigns strengthen and often transform museums, thus making it possible to sustain vibrant futures. Join this conversation about basic campaign components and best practices with campaign-tested development officers and directors. The campaigns underway at the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, Springfield Museum of Art, and the Witte Museum will provide the foundation for discussion. With operating budgets ranging from $600,000 to $13.5 million, these museums have campaign goals of $5.9 million to $100 million. Presenters will describe how they adapted components to fit their campaigns, met challenges, and used consultants. Panelists will also identify the changes they would make, given the opportunity for a do-over.
