Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

A portion of the .5 FTE salary of the executive director will provide leadership to administer the marketing and fundraising goals of the Art Center, and to increase the educational programming for youth and adults with an increase in all three areas in the next two years. Workshop attendees will be impacted by high-quality educational programs.Membership and other donations from fundraising efforts will be tracked to verify if the financial goals were attained. The number of arts education opportunities provided and the participants attending will be tallied. A participant survey will determine if artistic knowledge was expanded by the educational programs.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Funds were used to pay a portion of the Nemeth Art Center Director’s salary of .42 FTE. The increased financial stability for the organization and the employment of a well-qualified director has improved the programming exponentially for the art center.
