That’s a wrap for 2017!
We'll be taking a short break for the holidays. Our offices will be closed from 12pm, 22 December, reopening 2 January 2018.
The Australian Cultural Fund fundraising platform will accept online donations throughout the giving season, so get into the festive spirit and donate to your favourite project. If you’re planning to run a campaign with the ACF, get in touch with the team now to ensure your project is up and running before we close.
To all the amazing artists, arts organisations, donors, philanthropists and businesses we’ve worked with over the year, we wish you a safe and relaxing festive season and look forward to working with you in 2018.
It has been a productive and rewarding year for Creative Partnerships. With the holidays around the corner, it’s the perfect time to shout-out to all the fantastic artists and arts organiations that we’re supporting to run fundraising campaigns, learn from mentors and increase their skills in private sector support this year.
We committed $1,338,148 in-principle matched funding to 48 arts organisations around Australia through Plus1.
These organisations are fundraising for a range of projects and activities, including creating and presenting new works, core operational costs, new program initiatives, and capacity building activities such as customer relationship management and new IT. Whatever they raise, we’ll match it dollar for dollar, so give them your support!

Twenty-five artists are taking part in MATCH Lab this year. They’ll attend our Raising Money for your Art clinic in early 2018 and then develop a fundraising campaign to raise money for a project of their choice. Money raised during their fundraising campaign will be matched dollar for dollar by us. Look out for their campaigns next year.

Twelve arts organisations have been selected to work with experienced arts fundraisers to set goals and develop skills, methodology and a fundraising strategy for their organisation, as part of our new Arts Fundraising Mentorship program.
