Building Fundraising Capacity in the Arts

The Fundraising Fellowship, Dublin is already having an impact on the four organisations participating. The Fellows are in place, and have each developed ambitious fundraising plans for their organisations over the next 18-24 months. Those plans have been discussed with experts in the field, and the Fellows will begin working with Mentors over the coming weeks to hone them further.

The third Fundraising Fellowship, Dublin Seminar took place last week at Mason Hayes & Curran’s offices. Each Seminar has external experts in attendance, and we’ve been thrilled to have the input of Tanya Townsend of Bord Gáis Energy, Aoife Flynn of The Irish Museum of Modern Art and Eamonn Carroll of RDS Foundation.

As well as beginning the implementation of their fundraising plans, with support from Business to Arts, Dublin’s Culture Connects, and their Mentors, the four organisations will shortly be paired with community organisations to support them and pass on their learning through a training and mentoring programme. Dublin Theatre Festival, Fishamble: The New Play Company, Helium Arts and Temple Bar Gallery & Studios will each work with a community to test their learning by sharing it.

A wider number of community groups, projects and organisations will be supported through our free Seminar programme. An Introduction to Fundraising will take place on Tuesday 14 November 2017 from 6-9pm at the Wood Quay Venue. To book a place email

The Fundraising Fellowship, Dublin programme is a partnership between Dublin’s Culture Connects and the New Stream Fundraising Capacity Building Project operated by Business to Arts. It offers part funding toward the employment of full-time fundraising or marketing & fundraising human resources contracted over a 24-month period and the recruited Fellows will take part in a structured programme of training and mentorship as part of the Fellowship.
