Grand Rapids Public Museum

Grand Rapids Public Museum

MAI’s association with the Grand Rapids (Van Andel) Museum dates back almost three decades.  In 1985, MAI had the opportunity to partner with The Museum for a Resource Audit in preparation for a campaign.  That initial service, lead to future feasibility studies and campaign implementation counsel that strengthened both the operational equation and the facilities and exhibits.  These ongoing strategies became the preparation for The Museum to begin the process of moving away from the operational model of governance and support by the municipal government to one of a free standing nonprofit.
