[A] lucid and important book. . . . ArtsMoney should be of considerable help to artists and arts organizations whose survival and growth depend on generating financial support. . . . The book focuses less on the lively art of grantsmanship than on other strategies that can insure fiscal stability. Jeffri clearly knows the cultural landscape in this country, and one of the virtues of ArtsMoney is its awareness of the many nontraditional ways that arts organizations have secured funds.

ArtsMoney

Refreshingly, Jeffri goes well beyond grants to provide other options-from financing techniques to sharing supplies and space with other organizations-that help arts organizations produce and wisely use income.

The Artist’s Magazine

The chapters seem like reprints of a master teacher’s lectures. They inform, provoke thought and inspire the reader to explore new approaches to developing financial resources. If I were an administrator with limited time to read, limited dollars allocated for professional resources and a desire to explore new approaches to developing earned and unearned income, I would run-not walk-to the local bookstore and buy a copy of ArtsMoney.
