Arts Development Consulting
My personal mission statement is to ensure that the arts will endure in perpetuity, and it occurred to me a few years ago the only way to ensure their survival is to make sure they have the money to do what they want. It's not a glamorous or highfalutin work, but I believe it's necessary to ensure a healthy cultural ecosystem.
I have worked obsessively to help different arts organizations get off the ground and get the funding they need to fulfill their missions. This includes guiding organizations through the 501(c)(3) application process, fundraising, donor development, writing by-laws, case statements,grants. I have assisted various groups in securing over $15,000 in funding (which I think is pretty good considering it's my side hustle!). If you have a great idea and don't know where to start, you are off the ground and want to raise your profile or are interesting in launching a crowdsourcing campaign, please don't hesitate to get in touch!
