Event Details

Even though we don’t typically enter the museum field with extensive finance backgrounds, many of us will be expected to participate in the budget process and other financial management efforts as we advance in our careers. This session will seek to demystify the budget process, looking at institutional and project budgeting, while also providing an overview of museum financial statements. Our panel will include museum leaders experienced in both 501c3 and government museums, as well as federal and foundation grants. Come with your specific budget questions as we build in time to apply principles to specific case studies.
