Strategic planning, resource development, and risk preparation are crucial to maintaining first-class cultural institutions. Museums in need of assistance can contact the International Foundation for Cultural Property Protection (IFCPP) http://www.ifcpp.com/, RE-ORG http://www.re-org.info/, or other professionals who support cultural institutions. The public, meanwhile, is encouraged to lend a hand to their local museums, libraries, and historical societies--both financially and by volunteering--so that history, art, science, and culture can be preserved and transmitted. Many volunteer opportunities can be found at http://www.volunteermatch.org/.
