It is the mission of Benvenuti Arts to provide professional expertise in fundraising and management to the organizations and artists creating the most exciting, innovative art out there. We work with clients no matter the size, and we adapt our work to fit their unique circumstances. Whether the client is an individual artist who spends $5,000 a year on one production, or a mid-size organization with a few staff members, planning for growth, Benvenuti Arts can help them reach their goals.

While we are thrilled to engage with organizations of all sizes, our focus is on the smallest (<$500,000). We have specific services created to serve any budget and, in return, clients recognize that we must keep to specific goals and timelines. We strive to educate clients – to teach them to fish – so that they aren’t dependent on us. That being said, it’s our goal to be there for our clients at all stages of their lifecycle, and hope they think of us when the next big fundraising or administrative change comes along.

Benvenuti Arts services include fundraising and administrative planning and implementation, ongoing grant writing and management, consulting and advising, event management, and interim fundraising services. We have grown rapidly in the past year, with clients across the country in all areas of the performing arts.

Our team consists of people from all over the world and we work with clients of all backgrounds, thus Benvenuti Arts is a company where the difference is valued and diversity is a driver for the future. We strive to create an environment where everyone regardless of gender, race, age, sexual orientation, ethnicity can feel respected and appreciated. Benvenuti Arts provides equal opportunities to let everyone fulfill their potential.
