About the programme, Michelle Wright said:

“In 2017-18 we piloted the Culture Change programme working with five organisations all wanting to make leaps in their fundraising capabilities. The design of the programme which brings staff and Trustees together to make fast decisions has meant that many of these organsiations have been able to develop their fundraising capabilities and new programmes of work, as well as increasing the skills of the whole team ensuring that everyone is engaged in implementing good fundraising. We’re delighted to have the support of Arts Council England to extend the programme into 2018-22.”
