Ep 309 - The Problem(s) with Conventional Fundraising

In this episode, we discuss the (many) issues and limitations with conventional fundraising for arts programs.

'Conventional Fundraising' could be defined as transactions that begin with "Would you mind buying this overpriced thingy to help my kids' band program?..."

I also spend a little time reflecting about my own fundraising experiences as a kid in my high school band program, as well as remember an important mentor that left us this week.

NOTE - the car wash in the Episode's image is NOT one of the fundraising tactics that are a part of this issue. In fact I wholeheartedly support car washes for a lot of reason, if for no other reason than the fun and bonding that it brings about.
