Some of these opportunities include:

  • Australian Cultural Fund –   The Australian Cultural Fund is a fundraising platform for Australian artists and arts organisations, that provides tax deductibility to donors. And unlike all-or-nothing fundraising platforms, ACF artists set a fundraising goal, but if it’s not met all donations are still taken into account.  Raising funds with the ACF can happen in lots of ways, artists and arts organisations can choose to run a crowdfunding campaign, receive ongoing donations, or seek donations from Trusts and Foundations.  The First Timers Kit is a great place to start: or artists and organisations can get in touch with us here:
