Money, Money, Money: Turn Great Ideas into Funded Projects

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Technology and digital projects - for all of the awesome capacity to engage and inspire, to empower and enable, and to provide effective tools for organizations - don’t come cheap!

This session brings fundraising professionals from the museum sector to the MCN conference to share practical, real-world tools and strategies for turning your great ideas into funded projects AND for finding innovative ways to fund ongoing activities.

Fundraising isn’t typically part of the core skillset for technologists and/or digital media producers. In this session, attendees will learn how to “translate” tech speak into terms that inspire potential donors to get involved; professional fund-raisers will describe their processes and methods for raising money, illustrating both with real-world successes and “not-yet-successes”; and the challenges of funding ongoing activities and/or innovation will be explored, with practical suggestions on how to move forward.
