Format: Paperback
There are thousands of arts and cultural organizations in the USA, including museums and other exhibition spaces, orchestras, dance companies, zoos, choruses, jazz ensembles, theater companies, and botanical gardens. Yet the income earned from sales of tickets, merchandise, and services typically covers only 50 to 60 percent of their operating expenses, according to authors Karen Hopkins and Carolyn Friedman. Hopkins, the executive vice president of the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York, and Friedman, the chief development officer of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, further point out that the budget for the National Endowment for the Arts has of recent been dramatically reduced by Congress. "Fundraising for arts and culture in the United States today is a challenging and increasingly complex process," state the authors at the outset. "Because of the uncertain economic climate, Americans are reexamining their charitable contributions and are tightening their belts in all areas of support for nonprofit institutions, including those dedicated to arts and culture." Clearly, arts and cultural organizations facing the challenges of the next century are in need of new strategies and more effective fund development programs if they are to make up the budgetary shortfall with charitable contributions. Successful Fundraising for Arts and Cultural Organizations provides fund raisers a clear-headed, workable blueprint for better and more effective fund raising. This book presumes little or no prior knowledge of fund raising, and yet is thorough enough to provide even experienced fund raisers an opportunity to reassess their own strategies and beliefs, and test them against those of two very experienced fund raising professionals.

This is both a great introduction for those who want to learn more about this field, and a wonderful fresh perspective for development professionals and executives in the arts. Lots of practical info for those seeking funding, but also a great overview on the current climate of funding for the arts. It should be required reading for board members of arts organizations.
I am preparing to teach a graduate-level course on fundraising for the arts, and plan to use this as a basic text.

Among the vast sea of fundraising titls, Hopkins' work stands out as an especially helpful resource guide for those involved in arts/culture nonprofits -- specialized in topics of arts-related donor management, tax issues, and mission formation, without losing sight of the bigger fundraising picture. Current, thorough, and very much with-the-times. Highly recommended.

I've appreciated Successful Fundraising for Arts and Cultural Organizations. There is a lot of literature on Fundraising but not specifically for the arts. I experienced it while I was researching to write my dissertation on fundraising for the opera, when I would have found this book very useful

This is the textbook I use in the Fundraising for the Arts course I teach at Southern Methodist University. Every person working in Development at a non-profit arts organization would benefit from reading this book and keeping it as a handy reference on your office bookshelf.
