Arts Fundraising

Arts organisations have their own opportunities and challenges when it comes to fundraising

As government support has declined in recent years, diversification has enabled many to survive and even flourish. Today, arts fundraising covers a diverse range of techniques, including:

  • Arts Council funding bids
  • Individual giving
  • Legacy fundraising
  • Major donor fundraising
  • Corporate fundraising
  • Trust fundraising
  • New media fundraising
  • Social enterprise

Major capital campaigns across multiple sectors In order to maximise income, arts fundraising typically make use of the following consultancy services:

  • Fundraising audits or reviews (to identify the best opportunities and to know where to invest)
  • Fundraising strategy development (to set out how best to exploit the opportunities)
  • Campaign planning support (e.g. to design a legacy campaign)
  • Prospect research (e.g. screening of a database to identify potential major donors, or in-depth profiling of individual prospects)
  • Development of specific areas of fundraising (e.g. help to establish a trust fundraising or corporate programme)
  • Website and new media fundraising development
  • Capital appeal planning and support

Arts fundraising has its own challenges with which we are familiar. However, we know that it is possible with some planning and investment to raise significant sums in this specialist area of fundraising.

Over the years, we have successfully worked with a wide range of arts organisations, including Graeae Theatre Company, Shape Arts and Survivors' Poetry.
