The Arts Fundraising & Philanthropy programme wants to encourage and support networks, collaboration and group learning in fundraising across England in the arts and cultural sector. We know that there are lots of informal and formal groups & networks in place, linking people through geography or sector area. We also know that networks can be fragile, dependent on one or two individuals and subject to members having the time and money to attend meetings.
We want to support groups or networks to arrange their own fundraising training event, conference, seminar or introductory meeting. To do this, we set aside some funding to pay some of the associated costs that arise from organising these events, including participants’ travel costs, venue hire, catering, fees for speakers/guests, or any other relevant expenditure.
We are pleased to announce that our next call out for funding Network projects is now open until 29 September 2017. If you are interested in applying, please read our submission criteria here. Autumn Networks Proposal 2017
