Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions (LACE) received a grant the majority of which went towards building its cash reserve. The organization felt that the added reserve would contribute to its overall level of security and financial stability. The remainder of the grant was allocated to hardware and software purchases, including Donor Perfect to access and manage donor files securely over the internet. The organization also purchased a Point of Sale (POS) system, Checkout 3.0, to manage earned income streams. To enhance presentations and performances, LACE upgraded their PA system and A/V documentation equipment.
