The Doris and Peter Hansen Technical Assistance Fund for Arts Organizations supports organizations located in the City of New Orleans sponsoring cultural activities in the fields of classical music, theater, and fine arts. Examples of technical assistance include: working with a consultant to assist staff and board in development of a fundraising or a strategic plan; hiring a facilitator for a board retreat to grow governance abilities; or board and staff attending a conference or training session on a specific topic, such as evaluation, strategic communications, financial management, or fundraising. In addition, organizations may use these funds to complete an organizational assessment process.
