Fundraising Fellowships Launch5

Business to Arts is delighted to announce a partnership with Dublin City Council to grow and develop the successful New Stream Programme through targeted human resource support for four Dublin-based organisations in their Fundraising and Marketing.

Applications are now open for a 24-month Arts’ Fellowship Programme for the recruitment and part-funding of new Fundraising or Marketing & Fundraising Executives who will be supported by a structured programme of training and mentorship with Business to Arts as part of the Fellowship.

The Fundraising Fellowship for Dublin-based arts, cultural and community organisations hopes to build on the €15.7million of new income already raised in the first 7 years of the New Stream Programme; as well as on the success to date of the Docklands Arts Fund created by Business to Arts and Dublin City Council which was launched in 2015.

The Fundraising Fellowship is part of a series of Legacy Projects developed by Dublin City Council following their European Capital of Culture 2020 designation bid in 2015. The civic energy generated, new connections made, and new thinking developed produced a blueprint for delivery on many of the objectives set out in the Bid Book.

It is hoped the Programme will enhance and continue the investment by cultural organisations in capacity building, creating stronger organisations committed to long-term sustainability based on business-minded planning and a robust cultural strategy.
