Focus on Funding in the Arts
Thursday, October 30, 2014
312 Sutter Street, Suite 606
Art and culture are integral parts of our society, ever evolving and continually changing, but always providing a creative spark that inspires and challenges the imagination, and offering a forum to discuss differing views and ideas. However, competition for arts funding is growing, as arts organizations compete against other worthy causes. Join us for a lively discussion with representatives from prominent local funders to hear about the current state of arts grantmaking and what future trends they are anticipating. Attendees will also learn what grantmakers look for in proposals, what motivates them to endorse a proposal to their boards, pitfalls to avoid, and how to best position your organization for future fundraising success. Following the moderated panel, we will have a Q&A session and networking time to meet the panelists and other attendees.
