Initiated in 2008, LMCC’s Fundraising Fundamentals was an annually recurring series designed to help artists develop knowledge and skills in raising the resources to support their practice. The series featured five free workshops, as well as a follow-up session of one-on-one grantwriting consultations for participants who attended three or more workshops. Topics covered included: the funding ecosystem, grantwriting, budgeting, work sample dos and don’ts, and cultivating individual donors.

Although this series is not currently being offered, content and findings are being used to inform new programming to address the financial and business planning needs of emerging to mid-career artists. In the interim, we encourage you to reference learning materials from this and other professional development series via our online archive here.
