Recently, museums have been experiencing sharp decline in public funding worldwide. Innovative classes of financing are required to fulfill the gaps in museums’ budgets. This paper examines a particular technology-enabled class of financing – civic crowdfunding – as a potential mechanism for the attraction of sponsorships and donations for the museum operations. A specific questionnaire was designed to collect primary data on the potentials of civic crowdfunding of a specific project – the renovation of the Memorial Museum of Nadežda and Rastko Petrović. As indicated by the respondents (N=284), civic crowdfunding can be additional mechanism and viable alternative to the classical forms of public financing.
