Fundraising for an arts organization presents its own set of unique challenges—but knowing where to look for funders and what approach to take can make all the difference.

In this webinar, Elevate's Deputy Supersiving Director of Grant Writing, Ava Knox, will share the tools, knowledge, and guidance you need to write a winning grant proposal for your arts education program—all of which she gleaned after spending over a decade as a performer, teaching artist, and fundraiser with nonprofit organizations in both California and the DC region.

Specifically, we'll walk you through:

  • how to find and secure arts funding;
  • the different types of funding, plus the pros and cons of pursuing each one;
  • tips for cultivating and persuading arts funders;
  • how to leverage arts partnerships; and,
  • an overview of grant strategy, and how to write a winning proposal.
