How to Raise Money: A Free Workshop for Arts Organizations

How to Raise Money: A free Workshop for Arts Organizations Presented by Larry Rubenstein 10:00pm to 4:15pm, February 6, 2014 Wishcamper Center at University of Southern Maine, Bedford Street, Portland, ME

Larry Rubenstein will present a free, day-long workshop for board chairs and executive directors of arts organizations at the University of Southern Maine on February 6, 2014. This workshop, which will provide fundraising guidance, is designed for teams of two people per arts organization: the Executive Director and the Board Chair, or Development Committee Chair. The Executive Director and Board Chair, or Development Committee Chair, must register together. There is a limit for the workshop for 10 organizations, and complete applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Click to register

The workshop will provide participants with the necessary tools to approach potential donors and take the fear out of the “ask.” Specifically, participants will learn the following:

  • How to make the phone call to get an appointment;
  • Where to have the appointment;
  • Who should participate;
  • How do you ask;
  • Follow up and stewardship.

The workshop will be interactive and run from 10:00 am until 4:15 pm, with a break for lunch.

Larry currently serves as President of the Bicycle Coalition of Maine; is on the board of trustees of the Bowdoin International Music Festival (chair of the development committee); is President of the Board of the Friends of the Kotzschmar Organ which is currently finishing a campaign to pay for renovation of this 100 year old landmark instrument and which he is chairing; and as a trustee of the Portland Museum of Art where he is chair of the development committee and led the $11 Million effort for the renovation of the Winslow Homer Studio. Larry has published many articles on fund raising over the years and has received numerous awards including the University Medal and 3 Dean’s awards from Columbia, and the David Ben Gurion Award from Israel Bonds. He also served on the faculty of Rosemont College and the University of Pennsylvania while living in Philadelphia.
