  RE:          Report Regarding Grant Writing Workshop


  As part of its recommendations to the City Council for Community Organization Funding in the Arts Category,
  the Arts Commission included a recommendation to allocate funding for a grant writing workshop. The goal of
  the workshop was to assist the arts community in its ability to successfully access funding from alternate
  private and government sources as City support of organizations and programs becomes
  ever more impacted.


  On Thursday November 19, 2009, over 80 individuals representing local arts organizations and art programs
  participated in an all day Grant Writing Workshop funded with $2,000 allocated from 2009-10 Community
  Organization Funding in the Arts Category. The Workshop was conducted by Debra Lucero, Executive
  Director of Friends of the Arts. Ms. Lucero was selected following a Request for Proposals that was
  advertised throughout Northern California. The Workshop included a training for the Cultural Data Project
  (CDP) which is an online, centralized database of organizations' financial and program information now
  required by many funders including the California Arts Council, James Irvine Foundation, and Boeing

  Based on the 49 evaluations completed by participants, overall satisfaction was extremely high. Ms. Lucero
  will be available at tonight's meeting to answer questions regarding the specifics of the responses to the
  Workshop evaluations.

  A list of Workshop participants is attached as Exhibit "A."
