Fundraising Development Consultant for Gloucestershire consortium - application deadline 16 Sept

Cinderford Artspace is looking to recruit an experienced Fundraising Development Consultant / Project Lead to drive forward a project, called the Catalyst Evolve funded by the Arts Council of England.

The Fundraising Development Consultant contract will be fixed term, for a period of 2 years. There is a total budget of £26,000 which needs to be inclusive of VAT and expenses. The Consultant could be home based or work from the premises of one of the members of the consortia, subject to availability.   More information on the post here

This project provides an exciting opportunity to work with a consortium of five of the most dynamic arts organisations in Gloucestershire with specialisms in a range of different art-forms including visual arts, craft, music, theatre, and circus. Each organisation is a member of Create Gloucestershire, an umbrella arts and cultural organisation founded in 2011 to be the leading research and development resource for the arts and cultural sector in the county. Create Gloucestershire is driven and resourced by its members and its purpose is to enable and support strategic and collective action at a time of unprecedented financial pressures on the arts. Its goal is ‘making arts everyday’ - a greater understanding of the central role and purpose of the arts in our lives.

The Catalyst Evolve programme supports organisations to enable them to attract more private giving.  The programme: 

  •   offers match funding to incentivise philanthropic giving 

  •   invests in the skills, capacity and culture of organisations to better enable them to raise philanthropic income

Philanthropic income could be in the form of major gifts, trusts and foundations, corporate donations, sponsorship and individual giving. Increasingly important are smaller, regular-giving programmes, which can provide organisations with a predictable and regular source of income.
