Donate before December and Have it Matched!
2023 is the 60th Anniversary of the North Carolina Museums Council. NCMC started in December 1963, when thirty-five museum professionals met in downtown Raleigh and proposed the establishment of an organization that would connect colleagues throughout the state and promote their institutions regionally and nationally. Over the next 60 years, NCMC has done just that and more! Today, NCMC is dedicated to ‘Building Better Museums Together’ through local, state and national advocacy, various networking and professional development opportunities, and providing information and resources to museum professionals at all career levels and museum focuses.
To honor this milestone, we are holding a year-long fundraising event and encouraging donations of $19.63 to help fund NCMC’s outreach efforts and support of NC museums and museum professionals. For even more bang for your buck, NCMC members Carl Noid and Vicky Kruckeberg will match up to $1,000 in all donations received by December through this campaign. Carl and Vicky decided to offer this match because “we value the work that the board and other volunteers are doing to sustain a strong collaborative network in the state.”
Please donate to the $19.63 fundraising campaign between July - December and it will be matched by Carl and Vicky to help keep NCMC programing and outreach going strong for the next 60 years!
In hopes of generating some excitement for our new regional sections, we will be noting where these donations are coming from. If your regional section raises the most money for this campaign, you will receive special notice and recognition at our 2024 conference in Cherokee.
When you are ready to donate, please visit ncmuseums.org and make sure to mark your regional section. Thank you to Carl and Vicky for their generous support of NCMC and for all of you who continue to work to better our museums and communities!
