‘The mentoring programme has given me a chance to learn new skills, gain knowledge, develop confidence and recognise my strengths as a fundraiser. I wouldn't have come as far as I have in the last year without it.’ – Mentee, 2019-2020 cohort

The RAISE programme offers mentoring opportunities for early-career fundraisers working in the arts, culture and heritage sector across England.

The RAISE programme was founded to support long term financial resilience and sustainability in arts, culture and heritage sector by offering early-career fundraisers and more seasoned professionals in the sector the chance to learn important skills from each other and develop much-needed support networks. Our year-long mentoring scheme matches early-career fundraisers with senior or director level development professionals from a wide range of organisations in the arts, culture and heritage sector across England. Past mentors have included heads of development or development directors at organisations such as the Jewish Museum London, the Barbican Centre, the British Library, Plymouth Music and the London Transport Museum. 

The mentoring scheme is led by the Cultural Sector Network and Young Arts Fundraisers and funded by Arts Council England.

We encourage applications from fundraisers working all across England and from all backgrounds, particularly those who self-identify as BAME (black, Asian & minoritised ethnic).
