This #GivingTuesday, you can help MESC set a new standard for the field of museum education. MESC is committed to providing high-quality programming at low or no-cost to you, our members, in addition to compensating all speakers who share their expertise with our community. We need your help to raise $1,650 to ensure we can continue these efforts. 

Too often, museum educators are asked to share their expertise with others for free. Whether as a speaker at a conference, serving on a volunteer professional board, or writing an article for print or web, the labor of museum educators is systematically undervalued. With your help, we can change the field for the better. We can set a new standard of being valued for our work. 

MESC strives to create space where our community of museum educators can gather to learn, grow, and network. To keep our membership costs at an affordable rate, we seek grant funding to offset operational and programming costs. This year, we were awarded a grant from the Los Angeles County Arts Commission to support this work, but this grant requires a matching gift of $1,650. With your help, we can raise these additional funds so that your memberships continue to support MESC’s mission, vision, and values. 

Over the course of this month, we’ll be sharing stories from our community showcasing the power of MESC to help us grow as individuals and as a field. Share your story with us using the hashtag #SupportMESCSupportChangeand follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
