New Private Sector Support Survey for arts and cultural organisations

Creative Partnerships Australia has commissioned a national survey to estimate the value and significance of private sector support in the arts, and to learn about the challenges and opportunities facing arts organisations in attracting such support.

The survey has been established to collect important information from arts and cultural organisations that will give them the opportunity to benchmark their fundraising efforts, increase their understanding of private sector support on a national scale and identify areas for improvement.

The first of its kind in ten years, the survey will help articulate the importance of private support to the ongoing sustainability and resilience of the arts sector more broadly.

Creative Partnerships Australia will also use the results from the survey to develop or refine its programs and sector development activities, to better support arts organisations to secure private sector support.

The survey has been mailed out by Wallis Market and Social Research to a sample of arts and cultural organisations across Australia.

It is important to receive as many responses as possible from this sample, so if your organisation has been approached, we encourage you to participate as a key representative of the arts and culture sector.

If you have any queries contact Wallis Market and Social Research in the first instance on the toll free number 1800 113 444 or e-mail

If you want to speak to Creative Partnerships Australia about this study, please contact Matthew Morse,

This survey has been extended until 21st December 2018.
