In a challenging fundraising climate for arts and creative organisations, it’s increasingly important to use of all the tools at your disposal to make the best case for support for your work.

At this event, we will discuss the use of data and evidence in arts fundraising, how smaller organisations can maximise their fundraising capacity, and raising the money to deliver artistic and social goals.

Suitable for leaders and fundraisers in arts and creative organisations, this event will feature talks and discussion with funders and leaders in the sector, and the opportunity to connect with other creative organisations.

Arts Fundraising for Busy People is a partnership project between Culture Everywhere and the Arts Fundraising and Philanthropy Programme, aimed at delivering a collaborative series of training, traineeships, coaching, digital skills and innovative practice to improve the perceptions of the arts as a charitable cause and enhance fundraising practice within the sector.

Fundraisers and organisations can use Culture Everywhere to find the evidence they need to quickly develop fundable project proposals.

Organisations can strengthen their position to deliver better social outcomes through cultural activities.

The platform gives arts providers a place to research and develop their proposals, showcase their portfolio of work, find partners and funders, and track their impacts and social outcomes.
