C2C Logo
A number of collecting institutions have used Adopt-an-Object campaigns to raise funds for artifact conservation. Adoption programs offer a unique opportunity for visitors to meaningfully contribute to conservation efforts and to gain a sense of ownership of their favorite objects and institutions.

In this live chat event we discussed existing Adopt-an-Object models and explored the lessons learned by the institutions that have used them.
