Today’s funding landscape requires us to artfully and effectively communicate our impact in new and meaningful ways. To attract the funders of tomorrow, we will need to speak to the issues that are important to a new generation, and demonstrate how we address community needs.

Attendees will walk away with: 1) an overview of the current climate in fundraising and “hot” funding topics; 2) information directly from new funders about what does, or would, draw them to our industry; 3) what orchestras can do to remain essential to their communities and relevant to funders.
