“We are pleased to support the development of these materials, through Arts Fundraising & Philanthropy, to provide a comprehensive bank of knowledge and experience that can be easily accessed by leaders of arts organisations and practitioners, both in the UK and internationally. One of our priorities at the Arts Council is to help arts and cultural organisations become more resilient and sustainable as they explore new revenue streams.”

We’re celebrating 10 years as a social business at Cause4. As I reflect on where a decade has gone, with the various twists and turns of life including having two children, moving house twice and finally upping sticks to live in the country– it strikes me just how much has changed, not in my energy, ambition or commitment to the work we do, but in how different my perceptions are now about what’s important and what really constitutes a successful business.
