These are extremely challenging times for California museums and museum workers. Many museums are facing dire economic circumstances and the reopening of museums to visitors is fraught with concerns around the spread of COVID-19.
CAM is working to address these challenges head-on. We’ve gathered data about how the pandemic is impacting California museums. We’ve organized virtual conversations on timely topics, from SBA loans and remote work to fundraising in a crisis. We've met with members of the Governor’s Task Force on Business and Jobs Recovery to encourage the inclusion of museums in recovery efforts. Through our own social media channels, we are sharing the creative, inspiring, and interesting virtual content being produced by museums.

Please consider making a tax-deductible gift to amplify our impact. All gifts to CAM are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law and are not used to cover lobbying expenditures unless specifically requested by the donor.
