Considering international examples, Kit Matthew invites you to explore ways to more proactively and explicitly demonstrate and communicate the benefits of museums to communities. This discussion is grounded in Matthew’s 2021 book Fundraising for Impact In Libraries, Archives and Museums.
In today’s dynamic times, an external focus is essential to remain viable and relevant to both communities and funders of all types. This talk will explore how to re-orient planning, operations and fundraising towards a common language and practices drawn from philanthropy, community development and grassroots organizing. Matthew will also identify the differences between transactional outputs and transformative outcomes that shape expectations, processes and investments.
