Fundraising Initiative of the Year

Raising funds is increasingly vital to the sustainability of our cultural organisations and this category will be awarding the most impressive fundraising campaign by an individual or team.  Entries should detail the results and impact of the campaign(s) clearly detailing why it is a significant success for your organisation.


Within the period of eligibility, your entry can focus on one spectacular fundraising initiative or can look more broadly at a sustained campaign featuring a range of activities. You are permitted to include all sources of funds eg public bodies, trusts and foundations as well as corporate partnerships, public giving schemes, legacies, crowdsourcing and fundraising events.


Please tell us about the amount raised, the return on investment, how this relates to previous fundraising campaigns carried out by your team, and why it is important in the context of your organisation. You can also tell us about obstacles you have overcome to achieve your goals and any non-fundraising outcomes resulting from your campaign.
