BEST ARTS ORGANIZATION Minneapolis 2004 - Springboard for the Arts
Even given our flaccid economy, Minnesota offers a wealth of funding options for artists and nonprofit arts organizations, what with grants from McKnights, Jeromes, and Bushes (no relation to you-know-who) practically begging to be taken. But securing a piece of the pie requires a certain kind of savvy, which is where Springboard for the Arts comes in. The organization provides reasonably priced workshops and individual consultations that cover every aspect of the grant-writing process. Plus, the group can advise you on copyright law, marketing, going nonprofit, and everything else associated with the business of art. For the criminally minded (actually those in need of tax info), Springboard even offers a workshop called "Staying Out of Jail."
