Parenteau Graves teamed up with Creative Fundraising Advisors following a feasibility study to help the Portland Museum of Art (PMA) in Portland, Maine, articulate a new mission, vision, values and strategic goals.
The museum recently purchased an adjacent building that had housed a children’s museum. As the board and staff contemplate the next chapter for PMA, they wanted to ensure a robust, inclusive process. Parenteau Graves and Creative Fundraising Advisors led multiple focus groups, conducted surveys and interviews, and engaged board and staff in setting the new direction for the museum. The plan, approved in May 2020, is a remarkable, forward-thinking vision for what a museum can mean to a community, region and wider world.
