Do you want to learn more about how Creative Partnerships supports artists and arts organisations to develop private sector fundraising skills?
Join our State Manager for NSW & ACT, Christina Chiam, for our Creative Partnerships Online Information Session. This zoom session will benefit leaders and fundraisers from regional arts organisations and projects, as well as individual artists located in Illawarra and the South Coast. All participants will also have the opportunity to connect with Christina in one-on-one zoom meetings after the session.
This session will introduce the programs and services offered by Creative Partnerships, including our coaching and advice service that provides free tailored, one-on-one advice with our State Managers. It will also introduce the Australian Cultural Fund, our online fundraising platform, and cover fundamental elements of philanthropy and sponsorship; from writing an effective case for support, to the fundraising roles and responsibilities of the Board.
