A new £40m fund has been launched with the intention of increasing private giving to the arts. The Catalyst Arts scheme from Arts Council England will give £30m to organisations who already have some experience of fundraising but who need practical help to raise more money. Arts organisations with little or no experience of fundraising will be given awards ranging from £15,000 to £25,000 from a pot of £7m. The final £3m will be invested in disseminating ideas and advice on how to raise money privately.
