Sponsored Webinar: “Successful Orchestra Fundraising in 2021”

Posted on: December 1, 2020

On Wednesday, December 2, the League of American Orchestras will present Successful Orchestra Fundraising in 2021: Core Practices for the Current Environment, a sponsored webinar—free to League members—in which Bob Swaney, an expert in nonprofit fundraising and founder and CEO of Robert Swaney Consulting, will discuss essential fundraising practices adapted for the recovery environment. The road to economic recovery is a long journey that most orchestras are just beginning, and creating momentum for increased patronage through earned revenue will take time. Meanwhile, contributed support must supply the operational funds for orchestras to continue to fulfill their missions. In this 75-minute webinar, Swaney will focus on the fundraising emphasis for the new year; the shifting balance and coordination between fundraising and marketing/sales; and how long-term changes to the orchestra operational model might be incorporated into annual, planned, and major-gift fundraising. The content of this webinar was developed by and sponsored by Robert Swaney Consulting. Successful Orchestra Fundraising in 2021 takes place on Wednesday, Dec. 2 at 3pm Eastern/12pm Pacific; a recording will be available after the live webinar. Learn more and register here.
