Adult education as an opportunity for mission and revenue growth

While the Barnes Foundation has been teaching adult education for nearly a century, it took a pandemic to compel a transition into online learning. What began as an experiment out of necessity has turned into a significant new revenue stream with many avenues for growth in terms of audiences, mission reach, and donor and customer base.
