Donna is committed to providing communities with the rich gifts of the arts both in concert and in residencies. As part of our commitment we will help you:
Access available state, local and federal funding by providing you with
A) contact information for the granting organizations and
B) coaching you through the grant process
Provide guidance for audience development
We provide rural communities with a comprehensive check list of community partners with whom to work to ensure audience awareness and participation, time lines for publicity and other support materials, and suggestions for follow-up thank you letters and documentation for continued funding and community enthusiasm.
We work with communities to expand their own awareness of the enriching power of the arts in education, business, service organizations, and government.
