The Museum Fund for Nova Scotia project is in the research and development phase. With support from a Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage SDI grant, ANSM has contracted Carly Butler to undertake the development of a business plan framework for the proposed fund. Carly works under the guidance of a Fund Steering Committee whose membership includes Rodney Chaisson, Highland Village Museum & ANSM Board; Steve Workman, Ross Farm Museum; Shane Mailman, NS Sport Hall of Fame; John McLeod; Janet Maltby, NS Museum; Mitch McNutt, Fortress Louisbourg Association; Jim St. Clair, McFarlane Woods and Anita Price, ANSM (ex officio).
$100 from 100 Campaign
ANSM will move into the implementation phase of fund development in 2015, but in order to do that we need the support of the museum community. We need “seed” money to leverage government grants for the implementation of a fund raising and marketing strategy for the proposed museum fund. A “passing the hat” approach that provides real grass roots support for the Museum Fund concept.
The ANSM Board, Fund Committee and Staff have all contributed to the $100 from 100 Campaign and we encourage our museum community colleagues to join us. Helping museums to help themselves!
