Do you need help developing a budget, asking for funding, or marketing your organization? These video resources were developed by the Missouri Arts Council to support the professional development of arts administrators, arts organizations, and boards. Share the links with your volunteers, board, staff, and clients.

If your organization creates professional development for nonprofit arts, you may request financial support to document your training and host it online so the information can be accessed statewide.
