In this interactive session, you’ll learn more about choosing the right prospects to approach, cultivating those prospects carefully, and using the right moments and the smartest strategies to gain – and keep! – a donor’s support.  This workshop will include practical advice you can apply to your daily work as an artist or arts organization, as well as role-playing exercises that will help you practice for the fundraising endeavors ahead of you.
