A strong and financially sustainable cultural sector means a society in which all can flourish, with all the economic and social benefits that the cultural industries provide.
We can see state funding of the arts and heritage under threat, local government funding declining and the charity fundraising sector under scrutiny like never before. The charitable case for supporting culture is not promoted as powerfully and frequently as it should be. Despite all this, there has been no organisation to speak unequivocally for fundraising across the whole range of arts and heritage. We aim to become that organisation.
