Making Programs Self-Sustaining at a Small Historic House Museum
Alleyne, Shirley Brown
Journal of Museum Education, v35 n2 p201-205 Sum 2010
Museum educators at small museums are sometimes thrust, solo, into building budgets from scratch. In this case study an emerging professional discovers that she has limited funding for an existing program that she was hired to run. She finds that she has to rebuild the budget to discover the program's true costs, and that sustainability depends upon charging enough to cover direct and indirect costs, "and" a small surplus to fund future improvements.
