Our work impacts museum-goers of all ages, and our mission is to “engage people in a dialogue about the history, present, and future of human ingenuity.”

Goal: £10 million
Services: Planning Study, Organizational Effectiveness

Graham-Pelton conducted a planning study for the UK’s Science Museum Group, aimed at identifying the most effective strategy for leveraging government funding to secure £10 million of additional philanthropic income.

Partnering with a new Development Leadership Team, the scope of a traditional planning study was expanded to facilitate the Museum Leadership’s development of the overall vision for the project in parallel to the fundraising plans.

Recommendations offered two clear paths forward – a short-term approach based on building upon existing strengths, and a longer-term strategy based on transitioning fundraising activity from a project-led to mission-led approach.
