Does any of this sound familiar?

· Grant applications are frequently rejected, and you don’t understand why. · Grant deadlines loom on the horizon and you don’t know how you’re going to get them done · Your organization provides valuable and essential services and resources to your community. · Your organization has less than five paid employees and all of them are overworked and underpaid · You rely heavily on volunteerism · The board of directors is too busy with operational issues to focus on governance or administration · It’s hard to recruit board members or volunteers · There is a high turnover rate and attrition of personnel in all positions (Staff, Board, Volunteers)

If you said yes to any of the above

Congratulations! You are a typical Community Arts Organization or Non-Profit Organization.

Victoria has over 600 organizations that self-identify as Arts Organizations, and another 2000 Non-Profit Organizations. That’s a lot of competition for scarce financial, human, and administrative resources.

Now, more than ever, your organization’s success depends on finding innovative way to gain access to those resources in this hyper-competitive market.

That’s one of the biggest issues facing every non-profit organization and small business in the world. How do you compete for resources when you don’t have the resources to compete?

The Good News?

I’m one of you! Arts Organizations and Non-Profit Organizations are the foundation of any thriving community. I’m fully invested in this community as a father, citizen, entrepreneur, homeowner, and musician. Your success is my success.
