With an internationally recognized collection of fine art and the steadfast support of the community’s philanthropic leaders, the Columbus Museum of Art is one of the most venerable arts organizations in Ohio’s capital city. Benefactor Group was initially retained to conduct an assessment of the institution’s fundraising operations and recommend strategies to strengthen fundraising initiatives and relationships with donors. Building on these successful efforts, Museum leaders developed a bold vision for a larger Museum and stronger endowment. Benefactor Group is now guiding staff and volunteers through an $80 million capital campaign. During the “quiet phase,” the Museum secured nearly half the goal and the largest gift in the Museum’s history—$10 million from an individual major donor.
