Providing professional fundraising support to arts organization
ArtSupport NL ran from March, 2018 until September, 2022. This program provided twenty-seven arts organizations with access to training, coaching and mentoring, helping them to improve their fundraising practices and diversify their revenue.

The second chapter of this program, ArtSupport NL Phase 2, began early in 2022, and concluded in September 2022. As a result of this work, organizations who were able to complete the coaching and training increased their fundraising revenues by 28% collectively, during a time of global and economic upheaval.
