Developer, WordPress, Whatsapp, Skype · I came up with the idea of fundraising in the United States on behalf of Italy, for urgent conservation needs… · More in the Tuscany region. Mauro Bartalini is my colleague on the ground in Milan, Italy (Italian by birth, longtime resident of Milan, extensive planning experience). In brief, we envision a lean, modern approach that focuses intently on prospect identification and gift solicitation, and it involves a trusted international banking partner (currently being sought), and on-the-ground oversight so that timelines are met. Donor reporting, careful stewardship of all gifts, and onsite special tours and benefits will accrue to donors. Once a banking partner is secured, we will fundraise to enable Carolyn and Mauro to work full-time on Artfuel for at least six months. Three project budgets are forthcoming from the head of the Art Ministry, Tuscany Branch (check the website for details). If successful, we envision continuing forward with Arfuel to fund other projects and perhaps other worthy projects in other countries.
