On Charitable Donations

Jan Sjostrom has been doing a series on how the Palm Beach arts scene is coping with the changed economic climate. The third installment, published in Saturday's Daily News, is also a primer one what your organization should be doing to make itself attractive to prospective donors.

Some examples:
  • Demonstrate familiarity with the art form
  • Demonstrate a quality product (reviews, letters, awards, etc.,)
  • Show that the group is meeting a clearly percieved community need
They have experts commenting on what donors should be looking for, and that is also a clear instruction on what we should be presenting.

The earlier installments that didn't quite catch my eye:
Part one.
Part two.
