David Johnson of Arts Fundraising and Philanthropy walks us through what we need to consider when fundraising during a crisis and beyond.
COVID-19 has caused major problems to cash flow and revenue streams of the arts & cultural sector. Lockdown restrictions, social distancing measures, and furloughed staff mean organisations are experiencing new challenges. For most, fundraising will be important and the only source of revenue over the next few months. Even as reopening and recovery planning is being put in place, fundraising will remain an important part of the strategy for many arts organisations.
In this whitepaper, David Johnson of Arts Fundraising & Philanthropy shows us some of the most important considerations to successfully implement crisis fundraising campaigns for your organisation during this period of closure.
