Arts Management Newsletter No.4 (11/2001)
An information service by Arts Management Network
With this newsletter, we'd like to focus any issue on special topics and
undertake closer views on current developments in arts management. Today we
want to start with the topic of fundraising, which becomes more and more
important to enable arts and culture at all.
In our online magazine we have launched a knowledge database as a resource
especially for professionals and students in arts management:
Please help with distributing your articles and hints to expand this
database with more content for our users.
To keep our education guide updated or to add new courses, all directors of
arts management programs have now the chance to send us their details with
an easy form: http://www.artsmanagement.net/education/form.html
With best regards
Yours Dirk Heinze & Dirk Schuetz

1. Access to European and International Funding Opportunities

2. Funding the Arts in Latin America

Arts organizations in Latin America face unique problems in their quest to
become self-sustaining. The paper "The Quest for El Dorado: Funding the Art=
in Latin America", published in the last printing edition of International
Journal of Arts Management, discusses the major challenges confronting arts
organizations in the region today, and presents a typology of strategies
they have developed to secure their survival. Ximena Varela, the author of
the paper, is coordinator of the Regional Program and a lecturer/researcher
in arts management at the Latin American Institute of Museums, a lecturer i=
arts management at the Bank Boston Foundation of Uruguay and in museum
marketing at the University of S=E3o Paulo, Brazil

3. Book of the month: Cash in! Funding and Promoting the Arts (Alvin Reiss)

"Cash In!" is a lively, one-of-its-kind compendium of the most imaginative
new concepts, tested ideas and case histories of programs and promotions
that make money and win audiences for cultural organizations and projects o=
every kind. In this way the author explains the relationship between
Fundraising and Arts Marketing and - more important - tells us the secrets
to get money for the arts. It is an excellent resource that provides a
wealth of ideas for arts entrepreneurs seeking innovative fundraising
techniques. Alvin H. Reiss is the director of the Professional Arts
Management Institute, founder/coordinator of Marymount Manhattan College's
Arts Management Program and arts columnist for Fund Raising Management
Magazine. Danny Newman (Chicago Lyric Opera) means: "Just get your hands on
a copy of Reiss's book before the sun sets!" We agree with him.

4. How to Raise Funds Online, by Andrew Schinder (NEA)

Online fundraising is booming. Nonprofit organizations, both large and
small, embrace the Internet as a mechanism not only to solicit donations
from individuals and corporations, but also to develop an ongoing
relationship with donors. With the relative inexpensiveness of e-commerce
technology and the advent of many third-party "charity malls" that help
nonprofits solicit contributions, establishing an online presence has never
been easier, and, in some respects, more crucial.
This article provides organizations with an introduction to enabling an
online donation campaign and briefly explores a number of issues
organizations should consider.
