That functionality, combined with a creative fundraising campaign that kept the focus on resources and making the most of a bad situation, helped us increase our fundraising numbers by approximately 300% compared to the same time period in 2019." Like many other museums and cultural organizations across the world, The Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniatures in Tucson, Arizona was forced to temporarily close its doors at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Dedicated to preserving and advancing the art of miniatures, the 10-year-old museum relies on the proceeds from every sale, including admission, membership and merchandise, to fund its operations. With the absence of admission sales in the new, pandemic-impacted world, efficient fundraising became even more important to the survival of the museum. —Lisa Hastreiter-Lamb, Executive Director & Curator
