Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

The quality, type and number of arts opportunities in the state, and the organizations or venues that offer them will increase through increasing our donation of printed Raven issues to public venues. Evaluation will occur through a participant questionnaire, notes related to personal observation; and audience, artist, and youth attendance numbers.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Numbers of subscription sales and renewals were below expectation spring and summer, owing presumably to increased outdoor activity. These increased dramatically fall and winter as people resumed reading and sought to share the experience. Each copy contains a questionnaire asking if the reader wishes to renew or not renew nor receive a donated issue. There is space available for comments. Often subscribers will attach notes or gift subscription checks or donations with their renewals.
