Arts & Culture Fundraising Ideas

Arts and culture fundraising presents a particular challenge. You don't have the built in supporters that nonprofits focusing on health or social issues might have. Not only that, but the ticket-based nature of museums and other arts and culture organizations may lead visitors to believe that you aren't in need of donations at all. How, then, does an arts and culture nonprofit both meet budgetary obligations and continue the important work of cultural enrichment?

At Blackbaud, we consider ourselves true partners and supporters of the nonprofit industry. We want to be part of your organization’s growth and development. That’s why in addition to creating nonprofit technology that answers the needs of arts & culture organizations, we’ve also compiled resources tailored to the needs of museums, zoos and other cultural enrichment based non profits.
