Benvenuti Arts: Fundraising for Independent Artists Workshop

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 independent artists creating and producing their own work, this workshop will  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!

Note: This workshop is not appropriate for 501c3 nonprofits operating with budgets of $5k or more annually. Please check our out workshop on September 26 if this describes you!
