Providing professional fundraising support to arts organization
ArtSupport NL is modelled after programs in Manitoba and Australia focused on building professional fundraising skills in the arts sector.
Lead staff and board representatives from ten selected organizations undertook a fundraising bootcamp in March 2018 and were then paired with a professional development consultant from RBR Development Associates to work with them on a weekly basis to evaluate and enhance their organization’s fundraising processes. By the time this program is completed in December 2019, these organizations will have benefitted from almost two year’s worth of consistent, professional mentoring from national experts.
ArtSupport NL is our most ambitious capacity-building program to date. Thanks to support from Canadian Heritage and the Government of Newfoundland, we were able to give 10 nonprofit organizations professional support building their fundraising portfolios for the entire year. ArtSupport will continue into the spring, and these groups will be capitalizing on this learning for a long time to come”Amy Henderson, Executive Director of Business & Arts NL
