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.
Recipients of the Robert R. Janes Award for Social
Responsibility receive $3,000 to investigate their drivers for
success, scale up their activities, and host a workshop designed to
model their lessons and successes for other institutions.
