Help museums do more this Giving Tuesday

The Alberta Museums Association (AMA) is participating in Giving Tuesday again this year! Raise awareness and support for the Robert R. Janes Award for Social Responsibility, an annual award that recognizes, supports, and furthers the work of museums that are solving community issues and promoting health and well-being, by participating in this campaign. The Award was made possible through an initial donation from Dr. Janes, who continues to provide funding, and relies on additional community funding to directly support museums that are true contributors to the social, cultural, and educational fabric of Alberta.
