Big Picture giving: Growing arts philanthropy in Australia

Big Picture giving: Growing arts philanthropy in Australia

March 2023

Recent years have seen a rise in ambition in campaigns and mega gifts, and organisations are yet to realise this potential. With immense untapped philanthropic potential and renewed support from the Australian Government for the arts and culture sector, 2023 brings a new era of challenge and opportunity for organisations to achieve their fundraising goals. 

This Paper unpacks the themes of visionleadership and collaboration that underpin sophisticated fundraising campaigns to achieve major gifts and provides practical insights that can be applied by Boards, CEOs, fundraisers and philanthropists working with arts and cultural organisations across the country (including those outside major cities) to drive increased philanthropic investment.

Included in this White Paper are eight case studies of high-performing philanthropy and fundraising leadership including Ben Quilty and Ngununggula, Stella Prize, the Australian Museum, the Neilson Foundation, aimed at inspiring action across the for-purpose sector.
