In May, Bloomberg Philanthropies awarded ETM a grant of $50,000 and invited ETM staff and Board members to participate in a series of seminars developed by the Kennedy Center’s DeVos Institute of Arts Management.
The award and seminar series are part of the Bloomberg Philanthropies Arts Advancement Initiative, “designed to support small and mid-size New York City arts and cultural organizations. In addition to providing unrestricted funding, this program aims to engage grantees around activities that strengthen their long-term health and organizational capacity.”
The seminars began in July and will continue throughout the year, addressing topics in the areas of fundraising, board governance, technology, and strategic collaboration. By providing both financial and strategic support, the Initiative is helping ETM prepare for the future.
