RAISE: Arts, Culture & Heritage

RAISE: Arts, Culture & Heritage supports access to professional development opportunities for arts and culture fundraisers across England through networking events, mentoring, professional development and bursaries.

Coronavirus update - We are delighted to announce we are taking our courses, qualifications and RAISE events online and into virtual delivery. We are currently working with leading experts and specialists in our sector to create and deliver exciting programmes of 'virtual' live training and events using Zoom

More than ever fundraisers need to stay connected, learn new skills and share their experiences. We are here to support you and make that happen. We are updating our courses and events pages frequently with new information so please keep checking-in with us regularly.



We are an Arts Council England funded four-year programme delivered in partnership with IoF Cultural Sector Network, Black Fundraisers UK and Young Arts Fundraisers. We aim to:

  • make the charitable case for culture
  • champion arts and cultural sector fundraising
  • empower arts and cultural sector fundraisers to achieve higher levels of fundraising practice
  • support the drive for greater inclusivity, diversity and representation within the sector

If you want to hear more about our upcoming events and the latest opportunities on offer, sign up to our newsletter and follow us on Twitter @IoF_RAISE


Heritage fundraisers can also access a wide-range of webinars from our Giving to Heritage programme, which finished in 2017.
