Fundraising For Impact: What’s The Plan



Fundraising in the arts is an emerging field that requires specialised knowledge and skillsets. This will enable you to expand your funding options and consider fundraising as an alternative source of revenue for your arts organisation. To help develop your competencies and build a strong foundation in this discipline, LASALLE College of the Arts is partnering with the National Arts Council (NAC) to run a course on the essentials of fundraising, comprising a two-day workshop and one-hour clinic.

All participants will leave the course with:

  • A fundraising strategy for their organisation or for a specific campaign.

Who should attend?
Arts managers/ artists/ representatives of arts organisations who are new to fundraising.
