We’re pleased to announce the launch of Sustain Arts-Chicagoland, a FREE and easy-to-use online tool tailored to meet the needs of Chicago area artists, arts administrators, funders, and cultural policy makers.

Attendees will learn how to use Sustain Arts tools for fundraising, marketing, strategic planning, partnership development, and many other operational and analytical uses through discussion and hands-on experimentation with this tool (if possible, please bring a laptop). Specifically, attendees will learn how to:

  • Track funding connections between over 700 funders and hundreds of grantees to identify potential funders and visualize the Chicagoland granting landscape
  • Locate participants in 7 different disciplines across 7 counties, and zoom in on specific zip codes to see estimated and actual participation statistics
  • Search arts organizations using an index of 5,459 nonprofits and 10,452 businesses and filter results by geography, discipline, and budget size
  • Find partners and collaborators with advanced search features that identify organizations like yours and locate cultural entities in your neighborhood

We will share the Sustain Arts – Chicagoland URL at the event.
