Fundraising for Pivoted Programming and Exhibitions

Unable to host visitors inside, how does a museum reimagine its purpose and work to ensure it can interact with the communities it needs to reach? How do we, as fundraising professionals, remain nimble in our approach to secure funds through new channels? How do we ensure we remain true to who we are as a museum during this process? All these questions and more will be answered and discussed in this session.
