Fundraising Fundamentals 2019: Budgeting 101!
Lower Manhattan Cultural Council – LMCC’s core fundraising series is designed to help artists develop knowledge and skills in raising the resources to support their practice. The series features workshops on five key areas of fundraising, including: the funding ecosystem, grantwriting, budgeting, work sample dos and don’ts, and cultivating individual donors.
A budget is a planning and communication tool. Yet for many artists, the process of building a budget is unfamiliar, and can seem complicated or confusing. In this workshop, participants will learn how to construct a line item budget that represents anticipated expenses and income for a sample artistic project. The session will also include a review of basic budgeting terms and concepts, and address the importance of balancing and reconciling actual costs to your budget.
With introduction by Eli Yamin, co-founder, Managing and Artistic Director of Jazz Power Initiative.
