Leadership Professional Development Grants
These grants were designed to promote improved leadership and greater capacity for senior fundraising and development staff in arts organisations.
The Leadership Professional Development Grants program offered professional development opportunities to emerging leaders in senior fundraising and development roles within arts and cultural organisations.
The program, delivered in 2014/15, provided training and opportunities to benefit individual applicants, their organisations, and the arts sector more broadly.
Three recipients were each awarded grants of $15,000 to cover the costs of attending a leadership program. The grants could be used in Australia or abroad, to further the leadership and professional development of the successful applicants.
This program is a legacy program. We are no longer taking applications.
