Support for Groups and Networks

Groups & NetworksThe 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.

Call for Proposals

Applications are now open for proposals to our 2017 fund.  We aim to support networking and collaboration for up to ten groups across England.  The deadline for applications is 12.00pm (noon), Monday 27th March 2017.
