What did Philadelphia Asian American Film Festival want to talk about?

How can we diversify our funding streams from sponsorship/corporate giving to include individual donors, grants, etc...? Especially now that COVID-19 has affected most funding streams?

Additional Context

We have previously not had any individual donors, nor have we tried to campaign for donations. We also do not have 501c3 status, but have a fiscal sponsor with this status.

What did they have to say?

Linda was incredibly kind and well-prepared to answer all of my questions... and more! She did her research on my non-profit prior to our conversation and has even had personal experience as a volunteer for a film festival in her area. All of this knowledge allowed for a great conversation flow and she was able to guide me through the necessary planning steps for the financial future of my organization. I have a much better understanding of what I need to do now to move our development and growth in the right direction.

I spoke to Selena, the dedicated volunteer Festival Director for the Philadelphia Asian American Film Festival (paaff.org) about several fundraising and organizational management issues, including becoming a 501c3, diversifying revenue stream, information tracked in a donor database and creating an individual giving campaign. She will use the information to create a priority action list and review budget for programs and set fundraising goals.
