Corporate Governance: A Public-Private Partnership

The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County is a public-private partnership between the non-profit Natural History Museum Foundation and the County of Los Angeles. The Foundation Board of Trustees appoints most of its own members, with members of the County-appointed Board of Governors also serving as Trustees so the Board meetings can provide unified Museum oversight, policy, and governance. The Museum's operational revenue base is derived from public funding, secured by a contractual agreement with the County, and private funding, in the form of gifts, grants, and Museum enterprises.
