Philanthropy and the Arts: What Lies Ahead?
A panel of philanthropic leaders will discuss how individuals, foundations, corporations, and government funders are reconsidering priorities in this challenging economic environment. What do they view as the fundamentals of successful organizations; why do they choose to fund the organizations they support; what actions and disciplines do orchestras need to demonstrate in order to earn their support; what’s new and different today? Learn concrete and specific ways to make a compelling case for support, regardless of your orchestra’s budget size or geographic location.
