"The rescue fund for Detroit pensioners and the Detroit Institute of Arts has gotten a $40-million boost from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation"

More money-putting where mouth is.

I'm liking this new model of dealing with deaccessioning.  The next time an institution is in desperate need of cash -- the next National Academy or Fisk or Brandeis -- instead of screeching about how the proposed sale offends their sense of "ethics," people can go ahead and contribute the needed funds.  Someone should start a deaccessioning kickstarter.
