In this participatory workshop for nonprofits and artist-run organizations, we help you learn the ins and outs of audience and donor development. By examining the data provided by tools you already use, like mailing lists, social media, and surveys, we will help your organization discover more deeply connect to your current audience, how to attract new donors, and how to reach out to new communities.
