Building Resilience: Fundraising and Revenue Diversification Programme in Partnership with Cultivate and BOP Consulting

Build your organisation’s fundraising capacity through a new 18-month national training intensive designed to accelerate your revenue-generating capabilities.

The Building Resilience: Fundraising and Revenue Diversification Programme, a new initiative from Arts Manager International in partnership with Cultivate and BOP Consulting, provides participating organisations with 18 months of group training and individual support, designed to increase financial resilience with an emphasis on fundraising.


This competitive opportunity is open to up to 25 arts and cultural organisations throughout England. The programme is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.


To be eligible, organisations must have an annual turnover of £100,000 or more, at least one full-time staff member, a board (or comparable advisory entity) that meets at least quarterly, and at least three years of consistent programming history.


The programme is relevant to organisations with nascent, intermediate, and advanced fundraising practices. Strong candidates will articulate an impending opportunity or need that requires a sustained level of consultation support. Competitive organisations may include those that:

  • ​​Are on the eve of a major new artistic partnership or programme expansion;
  • Anticipate succession at the senior staff or board leadership levels;

  • Face an upcoming financial “cliff” resulting from the conclusion of support from a primary source of funding; or

  • Have made strides in revenue diversification but need to substantially deepen this practice.


Applications for the Building Resilience: Fundraising and Revenue Diversification Programme are available and due Friday, 4 August, 2017.
