The ultimate resource for cultural institutions looking to secure funding.
Acting as a catalyst for change, COVID-19 has accelerated digital development, pushing museums, archives, and libraries to prioritize digital initiatives while their employees and patrons adjust to accessing collections remotely.
Patronage dropped suddenly, creating a dramatic revenue deficit for many cultural institutions. Even as organizations re-open across North America, revenue remains unpredictable. As a result, securing grant dollars has become a serious priority.
