BACC's Annual Fund 2022
Thank you for visiting our 2022 Annual Fund page!
I’m happy to share that Balboa Art Conservation Center (BACC) adopted a new mission in late 2021: To advance the study and preservation of cultural heritage for all communities. So, our team spent this year designing programs, improving services, and inviting diverse audiences to learn more about BACC’s work. We received an enthusiastic response, but also came to the stark realization that BACC’s spaces can’t accommodate the clients, scholars, and funders who need to work with us on site. Our space is holding us back. Please help us improve by making a contribution to BACC’s 2022 Annual Fund Campaign today.
Your donation will support essential renovation projects that welcome all communities to BACC:
Space to Learn and Share - With an efficient construction project, we can convert a storage space to a community room for small conferences and training workshops. And, an underutilized administrative office can be converted into a resource library for visiting scholars and students. In 2022, BACC turned down the opportunity to host a gathering of conservators from across the U.S. because we didn’t have enough space to accommodate them.
Smart Furnishings and Storage Solutions - With an investment in furniture upgrades, such as moveable desks, and the conversion of paper files into digital records, the unusable furniture and piles-high storage boxes currently consuming BACC’s spaces can be cleared to make flexible work space for visiting fellows and a growing workforce.
Finishes to Last - With a modest facelift to the flooring and surfaces throughout BACC’s spaces, our look will once again match our words. Over several decades, our spaces have become shabby and it’s hard to be credible about conservation when it looks like we don’t take care of our property.
Please join me in making a year-end contribution to BACC’s 2022 Annual Fund Campaign. With your support, BACC can become the efficient, accessible space promised in our mission.
President, Board of Trustees
P.S. Your gift today in support of BACC’s essential renovations means we’ll be able to welcome you and your guests for a fascinating tour of our spaces in 2023. We look forward to seeing you soon!
