Now, New & Next

Now, New and Next, our free digital publication, aims to bring together some of the learning from the Arts Fundraising & Philanthropy programme. The magazine seeks to establish what is happening now, what is new and innovative, and what is coming next in relation to arts and cultural fundraising. It is aimed at Trustees, leaders of arts and cultural organisations and fundraising practitioners and anyone else making decisions about where to invest valuable resources in fundraising.

Our latest publication is a special edition, focussing on the updated Private Investment in Culture Survey published by Arts Council England.  Michelle Wright has written a blog for Arts Council England discussing fundraising post-Referendum.

The environment for arts and cultural fundraising and philanthropy in the context of funding cuts and competition gets ever more challenging, and for leaders and Trustees of arts organisations it can often be hard to know which way to turn. Many organisations struggle to release staff for training and development, and it can be very difficult to build a ‘whole team’ culture to support fundraising, and to determine where best to invest scarce resource.
