Current Campaign: AAM Fellowship Program

We are currently raising funds to support fellowships for students and museum professionals at any stage of their career to attend the AAM Annual Meeting & MuseumExpo. The program is designed to nurture greater inclusivity—for the benefit of museums, museum professionals, and the diverse audiences they serve—by supporting the professional development of individuals from underrepresented or marginalized groups.

Our goal is to bring 65 AAM Fellows to the 2017 Annual Meeting—a 50% increase from 2016. Your contribution helps support these deserving colleagues' registration expenses, travel stipends, and incredible onsite learning and networking opportunities. Please consider supporting one full fellowship with a contribution of $1,500.  

We will honor your support of the AAM Fellowship Fund by recognizing your contribution throughout the conference—our way of saying "thank you" for supporting a worthy colleague and investing in the future of museums.

Greatest Needs Fund

As a nonprofit organization, charitable donations ensure the Alliance has the greatest flexibility to be responsive to emerging issues and critical needs. Earnings from membership cover only about 40% of annual operating expenses. Each dollar donated directly benefits education, research, and advocacy, helping us meet our goal of advancing museums.
