New board supporters for Plus 1 campaign

Craft ACT welcomes three new board members to our Fifty@50 Plus 1 campaign.

As part of planning for our 50th anniversary, Craft ACT was thrilled to announce that we received a matched funding grant from Creative Partnerships Australia’s Plus 1 program. Until December 2020, every dollar you donate to our Fifty@50 campaign will be doubled to ensure more artists, more audiences and more venues can be part of the CraftACT story for many more years.

Each board member of Craft ACT has committed to raising fund to reach their personal targets of $1000 and $8000 as a team.

Why is this Important?

Craft ACT hopes to raise $50,000 by our 50th anniversary, to secure our next 50 years. That means, with the help of a Creative Partnerships Australia Plus1 grant, we hope to secure a total budget of $100,000.

It's an ambitious target, but we've devised a phased strategy of donations, board-led fundraising, a donor circle and new relationships with foundations, to help us achieve this goal by December 2020.

As part of the Craft ACT Board of Management, members have committed to personally raising $1000 each for the Fifty@50 campaign. They have each made personal donations and we hope you can help them reach their goal.

Thank you Team Craft ACT Board of Management!
