Radical Fundraising Discussion Club
There’s just some texts that lead the way and some texts that show you the pitfalls to avoid. Let’s read & discuss them. We’ll talk through some tried (tired?) and true texts and consider how to apply principles and practices to a 21st century reality—especially for Black arts organizations and other arts organizations whose leadership and core constituency serves underrepresented groups. Some questions we’ve been hearing and want to think through together: What do we do with these [probably temporary] influxes of cash? How can we use the moment of shelter in place to address the long-postponed and yet necessary institutional building? How do we emerge from this, whole? Can we work towards new capitalization frameworks that also help us accomplish our missions? Red Olive will provide the texts that will guide each session, and we’ll use your organizations as case studies and opportunities to go deeper.
