In 2017 the National Campaign for the Arts relaunched after a period of sporadic, but nonetheless valuable, activity which furthered our main purpose: to campaign for more public investment in the arts because we believe that the arts are for everyone and make everyone’s lives better.

We have achieved all this with tens of thousands of Pounds-worth of in-kind support and a very small amount of cash. Whilst maintaining our ethos of keeping overheads to an absolute minimum and using as much volunteer support as possible, we now need to develop some sustainable income streams to allow us to keep building on the success of our relaunch and ensure increased public support for arts funding.

We have plans to launch first an individual and then a corporate giving scheme in the next few months. To maximise the potential of these we need funds for collateral and targeted marketing activities.


In the last few years, we have:

  • Lobbied and acted as a voice for the arts sector (particularly around elections and in the wake of the vote for Brexit)
  • Published two editions of our influential Arts Index
  • Run the 50p for culture campaign, actively supported the My Theatre Matters campaign, and launched the Local Heroes campaign
  • Launched a new website
  • Run the first Hearts for the Arts awards & begun the second

A donation of £1,000 would support our fundraising activity for a month for our new Registered Supporters scheme. DONATE £1,000 NOW

A donation of £5,000 would support the development of our Corporate Supporter scheme and give us extra resources to encourage increased public support for the arts, particularly around the impact of Brexit on the creative industries, and reduced Local Authority budgets. DONATE £5,000 NOW

Of course, you can also donate other amounts – just contact us at or call 020 7438 2040.

The National Campaign for the Arts needs support from organisations who care about the arts and audiences more than ever before – THANK YOU.
