Our director, Leif Tapanlia, will presenting to the Joint Finance-Appropriations Committee (JFAC) on Tuesday, Jan. 24th. Leif will be asking JFAC to approve the request for a Development Officer for the IMNH. The new Development Officer position will work with the Museum Director to enhance fundraising efforts at IMNH. The individual will be charged with identifying and acquiring external funding in the form of grants, awards, and donations from public, private, and corporate sources to further the mission of the Museum. Expansion of our fundraising efforts requires a Development Officer position. This request will provide a financial return many times greater than its cost. A successful development program will be established at the IMNH to provide new external funding streams in support of our educational K-12 and adult programs, exhibits and marketing, collections and research, and for future capital improvements to our aging facility.
Leif’s presentation is schedule at 9am Tuesday, Jan. 24th. Idaho Public Television live streams the presentation sessions. We hope you join us in support of Leif and our goals!
