Date: Wednesday, October 14th, 2020

Time: 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. Eastern

Location: Online

Cost: $25 per person /$45 per organization (up to 2 people)*

As we continue to navigate these unknown waters, Benvenuti Arts is here to help you continue building your funder relationships. We’re adapting the institutional (grants) fundraising portion of our workshop, Demystifying the Fundraising Process, to address these uncertain times. In this workshop, we’ll review the basics of foundation and government grant processes, writing a strong application, and then discuss strategies around relationship-building while your projects are restricted by the coronavirus.

This session is designed specifically for organizations with a budget of $250,000 or less and a small staff.

You will leave the workshop with a copy of Benvenuti Arts’  A Simple Guide to Institutional Fundraising in the Arts. In addition, each participating organization and independent artist will receive one-on-one time with Founder Sarah Benvenuti!

What is included:

  • One 2-hour workshop on institutional fundraising with practical, tactical output.
  • Time to ask Sarah Benvenuti your specific questions.
  • A free 30-minute consultation with Sarah Benvenuti, usable within 3 months of the workshop.
  • Discounts available for those wanting to attend both the insitutional and individual sessions. 

Sarah knows how to breakdown the ins and outs of the grant systems. She gives you endless amounts of resources and tools to ensure you know which grants you are eligible for and how to make a good application! I highly recommend her workshops and working with her!

Workshop Leadership

Sarah Benvenuti | Benvenuti Arts

The workshop is led by Sarah Benvenuti, Founder and Lead Consultant of Benvenuti Arts. Sarah brings her operational excellence and fundraising skills to the table with experience that includes Managing Director and Director of Development of The Civilians, Managing Director of Curious Theater Company, and, currently, Benvenuti Arts. Since 2014, Benvenuti Arts has served over 60 small and midsize arts nonprofits in areas of fundraising and management. She has a B.M. in Music from Mercyhurst University and an MA in Arts Management from Carnegie Mellon University, and has taught workshops and led panels on fundraising, real estate, and management in the arts.

 

The Benvenuti Arts Fundraising Workshop was incredibly helpful. My producing partner and I run a fledgling arts organization. Sarah walked us through the basics of multiple approaches to fundraising, all with context from her experience in the field. This helped us understand not just how to fund raise, but the trends and contexts to help us refine our approach. Sarah’s personalized support, including a personal consultation, helped us refocus our strategy towards fundraising, and gave us clear first steps, as well as long-term goals and plans. I cannot recommend her workshop enough.
