Cultural sector fundraisers now have an IoF special interest group

first_imgCultural sector fundraisers now have an IoF special interest group The Institute of Fundraising has established a special interest group (SIG) for professional fundraisers who work in the cultural sector. The development reflects the Institute’s growing work in supporting charities and organisations across the cultural sector.The IoF Cultural SIG is chaired by Martin Kaufman. He explained that the group was open to all cultural sector fundraisers, “in the visual and performing arts, heritage and libraries, museums and galleries, crafts, festivals and writing”.He added:“Rising to the triple challenge of continuing budget cuts, a need to better reflect the diversity of our society, and increasing competition amongst art forms, this initiative will allow cultural fundraisers to work closely with the Institute around advocacy and government lobbying, research and training. It will also provide a terrific opportunity to share ideas and experience both within the cultural sector but also with traditional charities, educational, medical and other sectors.Kaufman will be speaking at the IoF’s Fundraising for Arts and Heritage Conference in London on Monday 16 March. For further details of this conference:The IoF has over 30 National, Regional and Special Interest Groups.
