Wellbeing Challenges of Arts & Cultural Sector Fundraisers
Our recent Charity Well Fundraiser Wellbeing research gained responses and insight from over 700 fundraisers. Many of the challenges faced were the same, the whole fundraising sector over.
But, the extent to which they were experienced and the impact of those challenges had some extreme cause-related / cause-inducing bias. And the Arts & Cultural sector had some interesting context and bias in its data.
In this bonus session we will explore those specific wellbeing challenges facing arts & cultural sector fundraisers and will share some of the ways in which we can hopefully help to manage and overcome some of these.
We will also be running a specific Arts & Culture wellbeing survey to supplement the original research, which we hope will be participated in by all conference delegates. As with the original project, the results will be shared with all who take part.
