SHARE Museums East have just updated their website with details of their new support package for museums in the region during the Coronavirus outbreak. In brief this comprises:
Emergency support grants up to £3,000. This cannot be just cash flow to make up for lost funding – there has to be a definable project with clear outcomes. This could be a business restructure, HR support, financial support; or anything that allows a museum to survive a crisis situation.
An online fundraising support programme. SHARE will commission web designers to undertake work that directly supports online fundraising, e.g. setting up online donations platforms. They hope to support at least ten museums.
A business support helpline with consultant Julie Cole.
A fundraising helpline with David Burgess.
A volunteer support helpline with Linda Brandish (announced last week).
