What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Friends of Honesdale Performing Arts is facing a significant challenge in securing funding to support their mission of promoting and enhancing the performing arts in their community. With limited resources and a growing demand for programming, the organization is struggling to meet the needs of local artists and residents who rely on their services. Without adequate financial support, Friends of Honesdale Performing Arts may be forced to scale back or cancel important programs, which would have a negative impact on both the artistic community and the wider community as a whole. In order to address this problem, the organization needs to develop a comprehensive fundraising strategy, engage with potential donors and sponsors, and work towards building long-term partnerships with individuals and organizations who share their commitment to supporting the performing arts in Honesdale.
