The Collections Management Fund, established in 2013, builds on the success of the Art Acquisition Fund. The new fund was created by Rasmuson Foundation and was managed by Museums Alaska through 2017. Applicants to CMF have been required to be 501(c)(3) nonprofit, government, tribal entities or equivalent organizations that hold collections in the public trust, such as a museum or cultural center. Small, rural-based organizations have been encouraged to apply. Preference has typically been given to projects that are collaborative or cooperative in nature. Emergency conservation projects have been given priority.
Membership in Museums Alaska is encouraged but not required. If your institution is not a member, click here to join and help us continue to develop programs that benefit the Alaska museum community and the cultural sector.
