Is development the same among museums? No—fundraising execution and strategy is quite nuanced across the field. This session explores those nuances with practical advice from museums of different types. For example, art museums tout their civic role; science centers promote workforce development; children’s museums stress play and informal learning. Topics will include philanthropic/transactional membership, campaign strategies, donor mix, org charts and volunteer roles. We can learn from one another through this session.
