Successful Orchestra Fundraising In 2021
Wednesday, December 2, 2020, 3:00pm Eastern/12:00pm Pacific
The economic road to recovery is a long journey that most orchestras are just beginning. Creating momentum for increased patronage through earned revenue will take time, perhaps years.

In this 75-minute sponsored webinar, Bob Swaney, Founder & CEO of Robert Swaney Consulting, will focus on core fundraising practices adapted for the recovery environment.
