Help for Museums

Advocate for Funding to Help Museums

We ask for your help in joining our voices in asking the U.S. Congress for economic relief funding for nonprofit museums during this challenging time.  Nationwide, our museums are losing at least $33 million a day due to closures as a result of COVID-19.  Soon they will be in desperate need of significant federal support to maintain jobs, secure our cultural heritage, help rebuild our nation’s tourism industry and survive the months ahead.

Please contact our U.S. senators for Pennsylvania, Senators Pat Toomey and Bob Casey, to express your support of this legislation.

Here’s a sample letter:

Sample Letter to Your Senator

Letters can be sent through a contact form on the senators' websites or sent directly to one of their aides. Here’s how you reach them:

Sen. Toomey

Sen. Casey

Thank you for your help,
