Developing Financial Resources for School Arts Programs.
Green, Alan C.; Ambler, Nancy Morison
This document provides a sampling of financial resources for fine arts programs in the schools and lists methods for submitting proposals and dealing with sponsors of funds. Financial sources for arts programs include school districts, organizations and institutions, special events, direct mail, individuals, associations and clubs, businesses and corporations, unions, foundations, state and local arts councils, and federal agencies. The document not only lists appropriate agencies but also discusses how they can assist in an arts program. General suggestions for contacting the sources involve cataloging motivations, skills, and available resources, preparing a succinct program description, researching the organization to whom the proposal is submitted, beginning with modest resource needs and expanding the program step-by-step, networking, letting the program speak for itself, and looking for ways to match resources with other resources.
