Fundraising and Development for the Arts

This course focuses on how fundraising and development supports arts organizations and aids in setting and achieving institutional goals and missions. Students will prepare an annual fundraising plan, a long form grant proposal, learn to determine program fundability and identify arts funding opportunities across four funding categories: individuals, foundations, corporations, and government agencies. Assignments also include setting realistic goals and objectives for different arts fundraising/development activities, evaluating success and sustainability to secure future funding and using new media, print, broadcast and digital media to build support for their chosen arts organization.
