Writing a successful grant application isn’t just about the narrative! In order to win over funders, your entire application package - from budget to work samples and more - have to all tell the same, compelling story. In this two-hour workshop hosted by Benvenuti Arts Founder, Sarah Benvenuti, we’ll focus on storyboarding out your entire grant, ensuring that you’re creating the best supplementals package to support your request. We’ll cover work samples, budgets, and other administrative documents, looking at examples and working through some simple best practices. All attendees will have the opportunity to review their samples individually, getting feedback from Benvenuti and other attendees.

Sarah Benvenuti earned her B.M in Music Education from Mercyhurst University and M.A. in Arts Management from Carnegie Mellon University. Having worked at Future Tenant Art Space, Arena Stage, Curious Theatre Company, and The Civilians in Brooklyn, she founded Benvenuti Arts, specializing in fundraising and management consulting for small and midsize nonprofits. Benvenuti Arts has worked with over 100 clients since its founding in 2014. Successes have included increasing fundraising income by 50% in one season; the creation of short and long term fundraising plans; paying down large accumulated deficits; and the successful execution of fundraising events. Benvenuti has sat on various panels concerning arts management, real estate, emerging leadership, and creative partnership, and works with individual artists to help them fundraise directly for their art.
