Arts Organisations to Stop Scrambling for Cash

Arts Organisations to Stop Scrambling for Cash

Fundraising for any non-profit organisation can be difficult, but when the country is in an economic squeeze, organisations that are considered a luxury often miss out on much needed funds. As such, the last few years have been increasingly tough for organisations in the arts and culture sector; especially small – medium groups who rely largely on membership and traditional fundraising activities.

A workshop to be held in Wellington on Thursday 13th March aims to help arts based organisations address this problem head-on. Facilitated by Kerri Tilby-Price, the Sustainable Funding workshop provides participants with practical fundraising tools and will help them develop a sustainable funding plan so they can stop scrambling for cash.

“So many organisations are stuck running from one financial crisis to the next” says Kerri Tilby-Price.

“This workshop is designed to stop all of that. It’s about identifying new avenues for funding and learning how to do things differently so that they can fundraise proactively, instead of reactively. People are always amazed by how much money is out there, once they know where to look and how to access it”.

The workshop has received excellent feedback from past participants, which have included organisations right across the arts and culture sector. National brand ‘Arts Access Aotearoa’ is helping to organise the Wellington workshop, and largely attribute their success in securing sponsorship to previous sessions.

“I attended Kerri’s practical training on how to obtain sponsorship and by following her steps, I had my first major financial sponsorship signed the next day” says Richard Benge, Executive Director of Arts Access Aotearoa.

The workshop is being held on Thursday 13th March, 9.30am – 4pm at the Toi Poneke Arts Centre in Wellington. The workshop costs $120 per person and registrations can be made by emailing tracy@exult.co.nz. For more information about the workshop visit www.exult.co.nz.
