Write Theory of Change

A theory of change explains how your program achieves specific outcomes. A well-written Theory of Change can help you raise more money, while enabling you to create an overall better program.

At the Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History, we…

  • Activate the MAH as a welcoming gathering place
  • Find, spark, share, and preserve stories and ideas

So that participants…

  • Enjoy shared experiences to strengthen bonds with friends and family
  • Explore art and history to make unexpected connections, build awareness and respect for diverse cultures and people to build bridges across differences
  • Feel involved and included, make personal connections, and feel inspired to go deeper to feel empowered to share their creative and civic voices

Our community grows stronger and more connected
