Demystifying the Fundraising Process with Benvenuti Arts


Demystifying the Fundraising Process

September 25, 6:00 – 8:00 pm: Institutional Fundraising
October 9, 6:00 – 8:00 pm: Individual Fundraising and Annual Planning

Benvenuti Arts is thrilled to be partnering with The Artist Co-op to bring you a workshop series around raising funds for your work and spending them wisely. Streamlined into two days, this series will demystify the grant writing process, help you find and cultivate new donors, and guide you in creating a cohesive, achievable fundraising plan for your entire year. With a focus on organizations that are under $250,000 in budget and with a small staff, these workshops help you to create a plan that doesn’t tax your schedule and helps you achieve both short and long-term goals. In addition, each participating artist will receive one-on-one time with Founder Sarah Benvenuti!

You can register for each workshop individually for $30, or register for both for $50. 

Workshop Leadership

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.
