Young Arts Fundraisers is a free professional network for early-career fundraisers in the cultural sector, seeking to connect, engage and mentor their members. They believe that long term financial resilience and sustainability in the sector can be achieved by equipping early-career fundraisers with appropriate skills and support networks.
Every month, they hold networking events with sector leaders. In partnership with RAISE: Arts, Culture and Heritage programme (CIoF group), Young Arts Fundraisers run an annual free mentoring scheme, where they match early career fundraisers with senior or director level development professionals from a wide range of cultural organisations across England. They offer networking opportunities, panel discussions, workshops, speed mentoring sessions and bursaries.
