"Show me the money!", and I'll show you a successful theatre restoration. Once you have a viable plan and a workable operational budget, you are sufficiently armed with the information you will need to go out and raise the funds needed to restore and operate your theatre. But there are still a lot of questions that need to be answered and plans that need to be made and implemented.
Does it makes sense for your organization to be a for profit, non-profit or hybrid entity? Does it make sense to form a public-private partnership with a municipality and private investments and/or donations? What about foundations and state and federal funding sources? Will you be applying for non-profit status, developing a board of directors, writing up a set of by laws and board manual? We can help you make these decisions, as well as guide you through the process of developing and implementing a capital campaign, fundraising budget and annual development plan.
