Legislators need to know how your museum impacts your community. You can start with a just few key pieces of data to personalize and complete our basic Economic Impact template. Then get creative! Put the data on your museum's letterhead, add photos of visitors enjoying the museum or additional data about the value of your museum in your community. See samples from other museums.
