0 The Catalyst Small Grants programme – Deadline 10th August 2017

The Catalyst Small Grants programme supports organisations to build fundraising capacity to enable them to attract more private giving to arts and culture. It does this by supporting organisations to invest in systems training and developments for staff, volunteers and boards or to cover the costs of external expertise to support their fundraising.

The programme offers one off investment of between £10,000 and £30,000.

Donations and philanthropy will never replace public-funding shortfalls. However, they are an important source of support for organisations to explore to reduce their financial risk and help them become more resilient.
