Dedicated to Development

Development, advancement or fundraising, is both an art and a science. When learned and practiced by senior management and lay leaders, it inspires an ever-expanding family of subscribers, members and donors.

Creating a Culture of Giving

An arts organization’s brand and culture must include a culture of giving. Everyone in the organization should understand and enjoy their role in development. Only then, in these increasingly challenging times, does surviving give way to thriving.

Convening Community

In the 21st century, cultural arts organizations must be reinvented to become centers for the arts, culture and community. And today, audiences in search of community want performances that provide total experiences.

Experiencing the Extraordinary

Commissioning, presenting and producing the most exciting work possible in various venues is dependent on development. Only when development, marketing and programming departments work together will audiences and communities experience the extraordinary.
