Lambda Literary today announced that it is a grantee recipient of Bloomberg Philanthropies' Arts Innovation and Management (AIM) program.

Through the two-year initiative, Bloomberg Philanthropies is providing $30 million across 262 small and mid-sized nonprofit cultural organizations around the country to help strengthen their operational and programming efforts, including training in fundraising, audience development and board member engagement.

«We're thrilled to be one among an impressive group of arts nonprofit organizations receiving critical support from Bloomberg Philanthropies,» said Tony Valenzuela, Executive Director. «Lambda Literary is growing and with that growth come new challenges that the Arts Innovation and Management Program will help us address smartly and directly.»

The invitation-only program supports nonprofit cultural organizations based in six cities: Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Los Angeles and San Francisco. All organizations are locally or internationally recognized nonprofits that have been in existence for at least two years. The grantees are required to participate in a management training program; secure matching funds; ensure 100% board participation in fundraising; and maintain up-to-date information in the Cultural Data Project, an online financial & data collection platform that assists arts organizations across the country to collect, learn from, and use data effectively. The grants are unrestricted so that recipients can use them to address their greatest needs.

Lambda Literary will be using the two-year grant to develop and strengthen its audiences and constituents across four key programs: the Lambda Literary Review web magazinethe Lambda Literary Review web magazine, the Writers Retreat for Emerging LGBTQ Voicesthe Writers Retreat for Emerging LGBTQ Voices, the Lambda Literary Awardsthe Lambda Literary Awards and LGBTQ Writers in SchoolsLGBTQ Writers in Schools.

Bloomberg Philanthropies is partnering with the DeVos Institute of Arts Management at the University of Maryland to develop curricula and conduct trainings for the AIM program in each city. The comprehensive workshops engage organizations around activities that strengthen their long-term health and goals and include consultations and implementation support for arts managers and their boards.

First piloted in New York City, Bloomberg Philanthropies supported 245 grantees through AIM from 2011-2013. Participating organizations reported improvements in audience development, board engagement and fundraising over the two-year program.
