Benefits

Diverse Donors

Traditional donor acquisition methods can limit your museum’s reach and lead to a lack of diversity among donors. With the Museum Advocate program, you can leverage data insights to better target your outreach efforts and connect with new, diverse donors who share your museum’s mission. Our tools and resources help you build lasting relationships with donors and create a compelling donor acquisition strategy that reflects your unique needs and goals. Join us today to expand your reach, gain valuable insights, and connect with new donors in a more strategic and impactful way.

Yearly Reports

Museum Advocate offers yearly reports to members, detailing the demographics and preferences of those who have engaged with their artwork. With this data, museums can make informed decisions about how to better engage with their audience and build lasting relationships with their supporters. Our reports include detailed information on the age, gender, location, income, and other key demographics of the people who have engaged with your museum’s artwork. We also provide insights on their preferences, such as the type of artwork they prefer, the amount of money they can spend on fine art each year, and other relevant details.

Traveling Showcases

Museum Advocate offers the opportunity for members to participate in traveling showcases, connecting museums with new audiences and bringing artwork to communities that may not have access to it. Our showcases are carefully curated and designed to highlight the unique strengths and qualities of each museum’s collection. We partner with a range of organizations and institutions to bring these showcases to communities that are either in underserved communities in terms of art access or have a high concentration of people who are interested in the artwork at the participating museum.

Outsourced cataloging

The Museum Advocate program offers a comprehensive cataloging service that helps museums to digitally document and organize their entire collections, including detailed records of each item’s title, artist, date of creation, medium, dimensions, provenance, and other relevant details. Our professional and efficient cataloging service can also involve researching and writing about the historical and cultural context of the artwork, as well as providing interpretive and educational materials to help viewers better understand and appreciate the collection.

How Cataloging works

Set-Up & Handling

Precision setup, lighting, and gentle artifact handling for optimal capture.

Capture & Documentation

Digitizing artifacts and meticulously recording relevant details.

Return & Verification

Safeguarding returns and confirming precise capture accuracy.

This innovative use of technology challenges the snobbish idea that only the rich can afford great art by helping anyone learn how to confidently and affordably bring the power of beauty into their lives.
