Our mission has never been more important.

Thanks to our generous supporters, the California Association of Museums continues its role as a nationally recognized leader in the museum field. Now more than ever, the museum community needs CAM to help advocate for museums on a state and national level as well as providing opportunities for professional development, learning, and networking.

 Please consider a donation to CAM to keep our organization strong to support museums throughout the state. If you contribute before December 31, your donation will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $2750 by members of our Board of Directors.

With your partnership, CAM can continue to provide valuable opportunities for museum professionals around California, including:

  • Scholarships for emerging professionals and representatives of traditionally underrepresented communities, to ensure that cost is not a barrier to participate in our programs.
  • Monitoring and advancing legislation that has an impact on our field.
  • Access to thought leaders, learning, and networking at our annual conference.
  • Online/virtual trainings that further best practices in the field in an accessible format.

Our goal is modest—to raise $5,500 from our community of supporters before December 31. Can we count on you to be one of just 110 museum professionals to give $25 or more?

Thank you for sharing our vision of “Stronger Museums for a Stronger California.” Your participation helps us all realize the vision to unify and strengthen California museums, and to expand our collective impact.
