Creative Partnerships Australia’s new research survey indicates support from the private sector for the arts is on the rise and is a significant contributor alongside government support and earned income to substantially grow philanthropy and build sustainable arts organisations in Australia.
The report, Giving Attitude, is designed to inform policy and advocacy for investment in the arts across Australia. The first in what is intended to be a biennial sector-wide survey of private sector support for the arts, the report provides baseline data from which trends can be measured in subsequent years.
Over 2,200 arts and cultural organisations as defined by the International Classification of Non-profit Organisations (ICNOP 1 100) were invited by Creative Partnerships Australia to participate with a survey response of 25%.
The report established total private sector support in Australia was estimated at $608 million with this support attributed across arts and cultural organisations via philanthropic donations and grants, cash and in-kind business sponsorship and the value of volunteering.
