A Summary of Our Impact in 2019-20

Business to Arts would not have the impact it has without our members, funders and affiliates support. Our membership base is our primary source of funds and without this revenue we would not achieve our mission. To give a recap on some of 2020’s activities:

  • We continue to implement our 5-year strategic plan (2018-2023). This is available here
  • We curated a series of online events showcasing the breadth of activity undertaken by Business to Arts with our partners including The Merrion Hotel, PwC, FRS Recruitment, Bank of Ireland, the National Library of Ireland, the Little Museum of Dublin and more
  • We enabled new arts partnerships valued in excess of €1.025million through various strands of fundraising, which include new sponsorships, bursaries, commissions and grants. We also advised / supported many ongoing partnerships
  • We launched the Bank of Ireland Begin Together Arts Fund in partnership with Business to Arts, which will distribute €1million between between 2020-22.
  • We added two new Fellows to our Fundraising Fellowship, Ireland Programme, from The Lime Tree Theatre (Limerick) and Music Network (Dublin). The Fellowship is a partnership with the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media
  • We also supported the cultural sector by offering online one-to-one clinics and group fundraising training, which focused on their changing fundraising priorities caused by COVID-19
  • We announced a range of new supporters of the Business to Arts Awards including Accenture, Arthur Cox, The Arts Council, ESB, Irish Life and The Irish Times
  • We contributed actively to the Arts & Cultural Recovery Taskforce, which reported to Catherine Martin TD, Minister for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media

On behalf of the Board and Executive of Business to Arts, I would like to thank you for your continued support. If you would like further information on our activities please do not hesitate to contact us.
