The free Evolve Programme aims to equip early-career arts fundraisers with the advice, networks and peer support that they need to succeed. Our aim is to help foster a resilient workforce equipped with the tools they need to build a strong and thriving sector for years to come.
Funded by Arts Council England, Evolve is delivered in partnership with Chartered Institute of Fundraising’s Cultural Sector Network and RAISE: Arts, Culture and Heritage programme.
Past mentors have included senior fundraisers from organisations such as the Barbican Centre, the British Library, Plymouth Music, Royal Opera House, National Theatre, The Lowry and the Science Museum. Meet some of our current Evolve mentees below:
Applications for Evolve 2022-23 closed in June 2022. Stay tuned for news on upcoming openings soon.
If you are curious what it is like to be part of the mentoring programme, have a listen to our interview with one of our past mentees and a current member on the Young Arts Fundraisers committee, Rosie Gitsham. Rosie is an early-career fundraiser, and we asked her to share her experience of being part of the mentoring programme and about the impact that taking part in the scheme had on her career.
