Introducing Fundraising for Artists: Ultimate Guide

Updates and Announcements | Tips and Tools | Fundraising

At Fractured Atlas, we are dedicated to helping our community of artists and arts organizations get the resources you need in order to bring your vision to life. Often, this means fundraising.

On this very blog, we’ve written a great deal of posts to help you fundraise more effectively. We’ve covered ways that it’s challenging to talk about money, what kinds of fundraising options exist for artists, and how to create a funding community. We’ve gone into the nitty gritty about crowdfunding perks and platforms, donation tiers, tax statuses, and end-of-year asks. We’ve also shared information to support artists through the grant application process from research to avoiding common errors

We are happy to let you know that we’ve now collated all of this information in one place, Fundraising for Artists: The Ultimate Guide

This guide consolidates information we’ve shared over the years, organized by topics like Fundraising First Steps, Crowdfunding, Grants, and Developing a Sustainable Creative Practice

We hope that you can use this guide to approach raising money more confidently from beginning to end; from building a budget to ensuring continued positive relationships with your donors. 

Our fiscally sponsored projects will be able to find this Guide on their member dashboard under the Resources tab.

We hope you like this new resource and that it helps you support your creative visions. We’re rooting for you!
