Aesthetics works hand in hand with a medical center’s foundation designing fundraising strategies to raise money for their hospital’s arts program. Tailored approaches range from developing detailed descriptions and renderings of individual funding opportunities to full-on arts programming with campaign literature, websites, and fundraising events.
Our method has proven its power to transmute patrons’ passion for the arts into medical center cultural programming support.
Several of our client hospitals have raised from 100% to 300% of the cost of signature elements of their art collections and generated sufficient income to underwrite full arts programs, including staffing to maintain a collection and coordinate arts activities.
Arts fundraisers resemble a capital campaign, with sponsorship by floor, area or artwork, such as painting, sculpture, fountain, garden, interactive digital display, or arts programming. Arts sponsorship is a marvelous way for donors to make themselves visible, influence the branding of their institution, and touch the lives of many.
Art is literally the gift that keeps on giving.
It wasn’t until we brought in the expertise of Aesthetics that we were able to move from lofty vision to strategic implementation of our Arts & Healing and Urban Renewal initiative at Children’s of Minnesota. Moreover, the team from Aesthetics has been embraced by every facet of our organization as they work to help bring our vision to reality.”
