Project Details

What We Need
  • Document outlining feedback on pitch delivery with suggested next steps and/or resources
  • A script for a 1-minute verbal pitch that communicates your Organization's mission, work, and why people should care
Additional Details

We are in the quiet phase of launching a capital campaign to fund renovations on a building purchase. We want to market this as an opportunity to create a permanent art hub for the community that will engage and support the neighborhood, and offer free-of-charge events and workshops to all.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have capital campaign timeline, multiple one-pagers, power point, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have building info, Board input, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $2,397 , allowing us to host more free-of-charge programming, hire artists, buy supplies and more.

This project is essential to the long-term vitality and presence for the arts district, so that we aren't priced out of increasing real estate markets.
