For those of you looking for funding in the arts, join us on GrantSpace on February 11, 2011 for a live, text-based event, Crowdfunding in the Arts: Meet Kickstarter & USA Projects. Representatives from Kickstarter and USA Projects will answer your questions about how their online funding platforms can help artists get individual donations for their projects. Register.
USA Projects, created by United States Artists, the national grant-making and advocacy organization, connects people with artists and raises tax-deductible contributions for original work in the performing, visual, media, and literary arts.
After this live chat event, join us for our live presentation online of Grantseeking Basics for Individuals in the Arts, where you'll get an overview of how to approach other funding sources, including foundations and corporations, for your work in the arts.
There was also a recent post on the Philanthropy Front and Center - New York blog about nonprofit arts groups and making the case for government funding. It sums up the highlights of a recent panel on the subject - a must read if you plan on applying for government funding!
