Fundraising Resource Handbook

Artsadmin, Home Live Art and Live Art Development Agency worked in consortium over two years (2013-15) as part of Arts Council England’s Catalyst scheme, which supported organisations to collaborate on developing innovative and efficient solutions to addressing fundraising needs. 

We have developed a free online FUNDRAISING RESOURCE HANDBOOK, for use within the Live Art and performance sector. This document reflects the experience of our fundraising research and the experience of implementing a range of fundraising initiatives. 

This document is not intended to outline “tried and tested” approaches to fundraising research and activities (many of which will be appropriate to larger organisations with greater staff capacities than ours) and which can be learnt about from other publications, online resources and training opportunities. Instead, this document has been written for the benefit of individual artists/collectives, and arts administrators/producers whose work is with small to mid-sized organisations and initiatives. 

Supported by Arts Council England’s Catalyst scheme.
