Grow your digital fundraising with Lightful

Grow your digital fundraising with Lightful

We know that the last 18 months have been incredibly challenging for arts and cultural organisations, with many still recovering from the negative impact on revenues. So, we're delighted to share our brand new programme, delivered in partnership with digital fundraising experts Lightful, tailored to help you kickstart your 2022!

The BRIDGE programme (Building Resilience in Digital Growth and Engagement), is designed to help you use digital channels to showcase your impact, build your online community, and increase your fundraising. Over six months, BRIDGE will help you to raise more funds using digital channels and will teach you how to create and implement successful online fundraising campaigns.

Through BRIDGE, Lightful has helped hundreds of organisations to realise their true digital fundraising potential, delivering:

  • 64% increase in fundraising
  • 25% increase in confidence in digital fundraising
  • 54% increase in social media engagement

“The best thing about the BRIDGE programme is learning about the tools available to nonprofits for little or no cost; that's what has prohibited progress on this front up to this point and knowing that we have options that are both good and free is a game changer.” - Education Through Music, USA.

The programme will run for six months, from February 2022 - July 2022. Throughout this time, the expert team at Lightful will support you to refine your digital strategy and achieve your goals.

BRIDGE normally costs £2,500 per organisation, but, as part of this partnership, Arts Fundraising & Philanthropy will be heavily subsidising places for cultural organisations. This means the full six-month programme will be available for between £250 and £500, depending on the size of your organisation.

Applications will close on 16th February 2022, so make sure you secure your place now!
