Using Facebook To Build Fundraising
There has been a lot of discussion about how Facebook can help you sell more tickets, however this is not the only thing it can do for your organization. Here is a really smart post from About Money, that talks about coming up with an advertising strategy, vis-a-vis Facebook, to generate end-of-year donations. Admittedly this post is geared towards mission-oriented non-profits, but the message is applicable in the arts world. The article makes a compelling case about the mechanics of how to do this and why.

Now is the time to be thinking about your end-of-year solicitations, and this is a worthy aspect to consider adding to your marketing plan.
