Museums of all kinds are critical educational, cultural, and scientific institutions in our society, but the value of our work is not always fully understood. The American Alliance of Museums helps museums tell the stories of their important activities and contributions and promotes a deeper understanding of museums with policymakers, the press, and the public.
Members of Congress carefully consider input from their constituents when making policy decisions and casting votes. The Alliance keeps a close eye on emerging regulations and policy changes so we can share breaking news and opportunities for members of the museum community to weigh in with their elected officials, federal agencies, and other policymakers.
The Alliance closely monitors a variety of legislative and policy issues that affect museums.
- Funding for grantmaking federal agencies
- Tax incentives for charitable giving
- Education policy
