LATEST NEWS

Cultivate, in partnership with Arts Manager International (AMI) and BOP Consulting, is pleased to announce the Building Resilience: Fundraising and Revenue Diversification Programme, an 18-month teaching and consultation programme for up to 25 arts and cultural organisations throughout England. The primary objective of the programme is increased financial resilience and is relevant to organisations with nascent, intermediate, and advanced fundraising practices. Strong candidates will articulate an impending opportunity or need that requires a sustained level of consultation support.

Competitive organisations may include those that:

  • Are on the eve of a major new artistic partnership or programme expansion;
  • Anticipate succession at the senior staff or board leadership levels;
  • Face an upcoming financial "cliff" resulting from the conclusion of support from a primary source of funding; or
  • Have made strides in revenue diversification but need to substantially deepen this practice.

The Fundraising and Revenue Diversification Programme application is now available online at www.artsmanagerinternational.com. Applications will be due Monday, July 31, 2017.
