Boost Your Fundraising Skills

Stumped about how to raise money for your dance organization? Consider attending the free “Grantseeking Basics for Individuals in the Arts” course being offered by the Foundation Center in NYC. The class promises to help inexperienced fundraisers to find arts funding opportunities, learn about fiscal sponsorship, and create a fundraising plan. The hourlong session will be offered four times between today and October 27. For more details, and to register, click here.

If you live too far away to attend the class, but are still interested in learning about new philanthropic opportunities, consider subscribing to the Foundation Center’s free e-newsletter: “RFP Bulletin.” The letter provides a weekly roundup of new grant and scholarship offers. Cha-ching!

About Colleen Bohen

I’m proud of my “comp kid” past! Dance meant everything to me when I was a kid, and I spent my happiest hours studying ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical and hip hop for 15 years at my local Long Island studio, L.A. Dance Studio, and competing with its company. I majored in journalism at Hofstra University, and save for an early stint with the student-run organization Danceworks, my dance career wound down just as my journalism career ramped up. Most of my attention was soon diverted to my work with the school’s newspaper, student magazine and an internship in NYC. After college, I spent a few years as a business journalist covering the toy and consumer electronics industries and now I’m ecstatic that I’ve found a way back to my first love—dance!
