Charting impact

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

CVAC's primary goal is to retire the note that currently exists on the Copeland Cultural Arts Center.<br/><br/>Our second goal is to renovate the building into an indoor multi-functional performing arts center.

Strategy 1: Develop and follow a marketing plan with a strong public relations platform<br/>Strategy 2: Continue and expand current programming & explore new opportunities<br/>Strategy 3: Solidify our organizational structure <br/>Strategy 4: Strive to grow the arts through community outreach & education<br/>Strategy 5: Design a multi-functional facility that meets the cultural and artistic needs of the community<br/>Strategy 6: Develop a multi-year financial plan to ensure the financial stability of the organization.

1. CVAC has developed a strong connection to the community from our programming.<br/>2. CVAC has a diverse Board of Directors that have connections in the community. <br/>3. The location of the facility is at the gateway to historic Downtown Minden. 4. CVAC has a good pool of volunteers who are committed to the project. <br/>5. Every year CVAC's awareness and involvement in the community continues to grow.<br/>6. CVAC has a good source of income from the Arts Incubator in our building. The Arts Incubator consists of one art gallery, one theater group, and one DCCATV (Public Access).

We will know that we have made progress when we have fully retired the note on our building and can move forward with renovations. We also receive feedback from art patrons who attend our events.

CVAC has refinanced the note on our building. CVAC has completed a Feasibility Study. CVAC has also engaged an architectural firm to begin design of a new building. We continue to reach out to large donors and foundations.
