It's very important to do your homework & create a campaign around your fundraising goal before you launch into a listing.

Donations, Philanthropy & Crowdfunding

Philanthropic giving and donations are motivated by shared values and often there is no expectation of benefit or public acknowledgement. If your organisation has donee organisation status then any donation is tax-deductable.

Philanthropy can range from a large lump sum donation or bequest from an individual, organisation or trust through to crowdfunding; which is lots of people giving smaller amounts.

Philanthropy and donations can be a valuable source of income for artists and cultural organisations allowing new works to be created and community programmes to be developed.
