Raising Money for Your Cultural Organization


Course description

How you share your organization’s story in a compelling way—both online and offline—is an integral part of raising money. This three-day intensive workshop will increase your capacity to raise money using a variety of strategies and tools.

Over the three days, we'll explore ways to engage your board, staff, community champions, sponsors and members in widening the circle of support for your cultural organization. We will discuss how links to an organization’s mission, leadership, governance, marketing and communications all impact fund development. Lectures, case studies and interactive group discussions will be woven together to encourage participants from both large and small institutions to share their own experiences in the vital work of fund development.

This workshop will be of special interest to staff and board members of all sizes of cultural organizations including:

  • museums
  • art galleries
  • historic sites
  • performing arts facilities
  • festivals
  • heritage conservation organizations
  • historical societies
  • municipal governments
