A programme encouraging an innovative and effective approach to arts fundraising, through training, fellowships and skills development
We want art and culture organisations to be resilient and sustainable. Our aim is for them to become more adaptable to all elements of the external world, including economic conditions and a changing environment.
In response to changing economic conditions and cuts to public funding, we want to encourage and enable more private giving to our funded organisations. We are helping them build their fundraising capacity, by supporting them to forge new partnerships and explore alternative sources of non-grant income.
We are also committed to embracing environmental sustainability and reducing our carbon footprint, both within the Arts Council and the organisations we fund.
