ACHF Arts Access
Goal 1: The purchase of business equipment will strengthen the chorale's capacity to serve the arts needs of the Southwest Minnesota Arts Council region by increasing annual donations to the chorale by 20% within two years. Outcomes include the purchase of equipment and software, transfer of information to the new computers, and the creation of a donor database. Goal 2: Increase audience attendance by 10%. Outcomes include a database of groups that might be interested in attending our concerts, followed by those groups receiving a personalized invitation to attend the concert. Goal 3: Chorale business will be easier to complete once all information is located on the business computers. Chorale members and the business manager will report an improvement in task completion. Donations for fiscal year 2014-15 will be compared with fiscal year 2015-16 and 2016-17 to determine the percent increase. Attendance figures for 2015-16 will be compared with 2016-17 to determine the percent increase. Chorale members and the business manager will rate the ease of task completion on a scale of 1 to 100, before and after use of the business computers and the ease will increase by 10 points. No specific evaluation tool is needed to measure the goals, only the annual financial reports, ratings and attendance figures.
Donations were compared to determine if there was an increase. Attendance figures were compared to determine if there was an increase. Those involved were going to be asked to rate the ease of task completion before and after the computers, but since they haven't been able to be used as fully as intended, the ratings weren't completed. Donations for fiscal 2014-2015 were $1275, and were $1857 for 2015-2016, an increase of 46%. Attendance during 2014-2015 season was about 900, attendance during 2015-2016 was about 1250, an increase of 39%.
