Are financial gifts to museums morally dubious? Advocates of effective altruism, a philosophy that applies evidence and reason to determine the most effective ways to improve the world for the greatest positive impact, contend they are. Learn why the effective altruism movement is gathering strength, potentially ominous implications for financial giving to museums, and tactics and strategies to employ for greatest relevancy in this changing philanthropic environment.
Kat Rosqueta will be a panelist for this session, “Effective Altruism, Evidence-based Giving, and Museums” at the American Alliance of Museums Annual Meeting & MuseumExpo, a gathering of museum professionals from all over the world.
