CEPA Gallery, located in Buffalo, New York was awarded a Warhol Initiative Fund Grant to support the creation of a strategic vision and business plan with a primary focus on Board and fund development. The organization worked with two consultants; Eve Berry and Neil Melbrod to facilitate this process. The consultants worked extensively with CEPA’s Executive staff and Board to uncover previously untapped skills, identify needs, and recruit new members. They prepared a Board Manual, provided development and fundraising training, and facilitated a strategic planning process.¬† Additionally, CEPA Gallery’s staff was able to create new templates for organizational and programmatic budgeting. The organization also allocated funds towards the development of a revenue-generating program as well as an update in the development of their website .
