Artistic Fundraising Group provides fundraising strategies and resources to nonprofits working in Chicago's vibrant artistic and cultural scene. 

what we do

We generate growth in all areas of contributed revenue for small- to mid-level nonprofit organizations by building comprehensive, custom fundraising strategies. We take pride in effectively and collaboratively working with each client to develop unique, achievable fundraising solutions that truly work for each organization.

We provide consulting services in both institutional and individual giving, board fundraising, and the development of multi-year fundraising plans. We also take a hands-on approach to support an organization’s leadership, such as developing copy for annual campaigns, coordinating special events, or executing a calendar of grant proposals. Finally, we teach workshops and host seminars to give your leadership the skills they need to fundraise—and to help them feel inspired to advocate for your mission and make that ask.

why we do it

Small arts organizations are the lifeblood of Chicago’s cultural fabric. They amplify the voices of the 21st century. They educate youth and adults alike, inspiring them to see the world in a different way. They push the boundaries of an art form while challenging traditional notions of who can be represented by it.

These organizations have the potential to grow into true cultural leaders in our shared community, if only they can find the resources to get there. As artists ourselves, we at Artistic Fundraising Group are committed to making these organizations thrive.

There is a significant lack of capacity-building opportunities that are scaled for small nonprofits. Artistic Fundraising Group makes fundraising strategies accessible and customizable for all of the organizations we collaborate with, whether your nonprofit has a full-time staff of twenty or a volunteer team of three.
