League Webinar: “Emerging Challenges and Solutions in Orchestra Fundraising”

Posted on: November 16, 2021

Orchestras have met the pandemic with heightened creativity and innovation. And that’s particularly true for fundraising, since orchestras have had to amplify their giving programs to make up for dramatic reductions in box office and other earned income. As concert performances resume and emergency funding and special, one-time gifts are being spent, orchestras continue to rely on increased fundraising to balance the budget. How to maintain and grow fundraising programs while earned revenue finds its footing? On Tuesday, November 16 at 3:00pm Eastern/Noon ​Pacific, the League of American Orchestras will present Emerging Challenges and Solutions in Orchestra Fundraising, a 60-minute webinar in which Bob Swaney, founder and CEO of Robert Swaney Consulting, Inc., will discuss emerging best practices for orchestra fundraising and actionable steps toward financial sustainability.

Emerging Challenges and Solutions in Orchestra Fundraising takes place on Tuesday, November 16, 3:00pm Eastern/Noon Pacific; a recording will be available after the live webinar. The League is offering 50% off registrations to staff of NYC arts organizations, thanks to the generosity of the Howard Gilman Foundation and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
