How to Do It
Could your project get money from foundations, government grants and individual donations? Money that only wants to support your dream, and isn’t looking for a piece of your profits? Did you know that Beasts of the Southern Wild, Detropia and Born into Brothels started this way?
On Tuesday, March 5, 2013, at 4 pm PST/7 pm EST, fundraising expert Morrie Warshawski will lead a special teleseminar to teach creative people how to get funding from unexpected places. Warshawski is the author of Shaking the Money Tree and The Fundraising Houseparty, and he has spent more than 30 years working in the not-for-profit economy. The teleseminar (telephone seminar) is specially designed for creative people in all disciplines who want to learn how to get money from “non-investment” sources—grants and donations from foundations, corporations, government agencies and private individuals.
Warshawski has served as a strategist and guide for the National Endowment for the Arts, Habitat for Humanity, Pew Charitable Trusts, the National Wildlife Foundation and arts councils across the country. he will be interviewed by Cultural Weekly‘s publisher Adam Leipzig, and together they will demystify the non-commercial funding world, and provide a clear path to approach money prospects.
