In all orchestras, the pandemic has led to a heightened level of creativity and innovation for staff, boards, musicians, and volunteers. This has been especially true for anyone who has had to amplify their giving program to make up for dramatic reductions in earned income.

Now, as concert performances are steadily restarting and emergency funding and special, one-time gifts are being spent, orchestras continue to rely on increased fundraising to balance the operational budget. Preparation is essential for fundraising programs to maintain and grow while earned revenue finds its footing in the seasons to come.

In this 60-minute webinar, Bob Swaney, Founder & CEO of Robert Swaney Consulting, Inc., discusses new and emerging best practices for orchestra fundraising and actionable steps you can take toward financial sustainability as we look ahead to FY23.
