Regardless of research setting, it has become vital for art information professionals to pursue financial support through individual donors, friends groups, community partners, and grant-funding entities in order to advance our institutional missions and goals. Unfortunately, relatively few art information professionals have backgrounds in institutional advancement, grant writing or donor relations. The challenging financial environment brought on by the pandemic has further underscored the necessity for these skills.

This session will highlight key aspects of fundraising through the insights of three proven leaders, each of whom will address tried and true approaches to fundraising. They will also share reflections about their fundraising experiences during the pandemic that relate to capital projects, exhibitions, and virtual fundraisers, as well as diversity and equity initiatives.
