Breakfast Club: Funding Relationships @ The Arts & Business Council of Chicago
Nov 13 @ 9:00 am – 10:00 am

The Arts & Business Council of Chicago convenes a monthly morning gathering for arts administrators to discuss topics and share ideas relevant to the business of art. Breakfast Club is a dynamic opportunity for arts administrators to connect with one another and collaborate on solutions for navigating personal and industry challenges.

Tuesday, November 13 from 9:00 A.M. – 10:00 A.M.

The average nonprofit organization’s budget is made up of 65% contributed income. With the huge amount of philanthropic initiatives: political advocacy, health initiatives, animal welfare, and so much more, it’s crucial to create meaningful relationships and write winning narratives that illustrate your work is worthy of funding from corporate sponsors, foundations, and individual donors.

A&BC’s new Director of Strategic Partnerships, Yvonne Orr-El, will join Breakfast Club to facilitate a conversation around the lifespan of a funding relationship and what it takes to gain your donors’ satisfaction and trust.
