Join OMA for our February Webinar - Crowdfunding for Museums!

Every museum has fundraising goals - and "tried and true" special events, campaigns, and donors that help achieve those goals. But, what happens when the traditional fundraising activities aren't producing the results you hoped? How can museums use technology to tap into new audiences, and the philanthropic spirit of online giving?

Join OMA, February 20 as we explore how two organizations used various crowdfunding platforms and resources to great success at their organization - and how their experiences could be translated to use at your museum.

Crowdfunding for Museums - What to expect

Participants will hear from the Smithsonian National Museum of American History's Kari Fantasia and Laura Duff as they talk about their experiences using crowdfunding for the museum's campaign to restore the Ruby Slippers used in the film "The Wizard of Oz."

Then, Kimberly Kenney will talk about the McKinley Presidential Library & Museum's experience using crowdfunding to purchase Ida McKinley's Tiara after it's appearance on TV's "Pawn Stars."

This webinar is available for only $10 for OMA members ($15 for non-members), but don't delay! Registration for Crowdfunding for Museums ends February 16!
