In response to changing economic conditions and cuts to public funding, we want to encourage and enable more private giving to our funded organisations. We are helping them build their fundraising capacity, by supporting them to forge new partnerships and explore alternative sources of non-grant income.
We are also committed to embracing environmental sustainability and reducing our carbon footprint, both within the Arts Council and the organisations we fund.
What will success look like?
- arts organisations, museums and libraries can demonstrate an ability to adapt to their external environment
- arts organisations and museums have increased the share of their income that comes from a wider range of contributed or earned income sources
- local authorities and other partners value the Arts Council’s development role in supporting arts organisations, museums and libraries to be more resilient
- the cultural sector embraces environmental sustainability and has reduced its carbon footprint
