RAISE 2021

We are delighted to be one of 15 organisations taking part in the Arts Council's RAISE 2021 in partnership with O'Kennedy Consulting.

The RAISE programme supports Arts Council funded organisations to augment their regular funding by building capacity to generate significant new private philanthropic investment. 
Philanthropy in tandem with government investment, has a key role to play in promoting Ireland’s vibrant arts and cultural sector, supporting organisations in creating and sharing impactful work across a diverse range of art forms. O’Kennedy Consulting  partners with the Arts Council to deliver RAISE, providing fundraising training and support to dozens of arts organisations across the country, and empowering them to engage individual donors, companies and foundations as partners in delivering first-class programmes, events and exhibitions. 

'We are thrilled to be a part of the RAISE Academy programme this year, and are looking forward to working with O'Kennedy Consulting and the Arts Council to define direction in our fundraising strategy and activities, and build skills in our team to support fundraising efforts.' says CEO, Sheila Creevey
