COVID-19 Survey for Heritage Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected everyone and every organization in an unprecedented way. The extent of the impact is still unfolding. With current COVID-19 financial aid running out, we want to make sure that heritage is represented in any future recovery efforts, funding, and decision-making. In order to do that, we need data!

We will be sending out a total of three surveys over the course of the next 8 months to capture data from March 2020-June 2021 to understand the progression of impact and recovery. We need you to participate so we can capture as much information as possible. The information will be used in statewide disaster planning and shared with other heritage service agencies and organizations. We will only share specific organization information and stories with permission.

Who should take this survey?
Anyone that is dealing with heritage related activities in Oregon including, but not limited to, museums, historical societies, historic cemeteries, main streets, historic preservation, archaeology, genealogical societies, libraries with historical collections and archives, etc.

Survey Details
Now, because this information is so important, we are asking for a lot of it. This survey could take 20-30 minutes. While that seems like a long time, it is necessary to get this information so that we can relay the reality of how COVID-19 has impacted and continues to impact heritage into 2021. To help complete the survey faster, below is some of the information you might want to have on hand before starting the survey:

  *   Budget info for pre and during COVID-19, including financial information for March 2020- October 2020
  *   General staff info such as number of paid staff and duties and volunteer numbers and tasks pre and during COVID-19
  *   Attendance numbers pre and during COVID-19, general attendance and student groups
  *   Information on open hours and days of the week pre and during during COVID-19
  *   Stories of impact during COVID-19

Thank you in advance for taking this survey and making your organization's voice heard in future decision-making regarding COVID-19 recovery. If you have any questions about this survey or how the results will be used, please contact heritage.info at oregon.gov<mailto:heritage.info at oregon.gov> or call Katie Henry at (503) 877-8834.
