While many cultural and other not-for-profit organisations reported declines in many areas of fundraising, others are reporting an increase in their wider revenue generation, comparing their results on the previous year.The survey was conducted over January and February 2009 and attracted responses from 306 organisations across the UK.A number of respondents also provided insights into a range of ways in which they are seeking to address any potential shortfalls in the medium term which we have included within the full report.Arts Quarter were able to use the data to compare the situation in cultural sector organisations against that for the wider charity sector.They found that the cultural sector had suffered marginally more from a drop in corporate support than the wider charitable community. Organisations were typically either having to demonstrate even greater value to their sponsors than before, or were reporting that companies had completely withdrawn their support.In contrast, cultural organisations were faring better than the wider charitable sector in terms of retaining funding from grantmaking trusts.Cultural organisations were suffering a higher rate of decline than other charities in individual giving of gifts of less than £1,000.They survey enabled Arts Quarter to compare organisations in London with those elsewhere in the UK.The survey confirmed that both cultural and other charitable organisations outside London were suffering greater declines in corporate giving than those in London. However, London-based organisations reported a greater decline in support from Trusts for both project support and core funding than those based elsewhere in the UK. Similarly, levels of individual giving were also stronger outside London.A copy of the full report is available at no charge from Arts Quarter.www.artsquarter.co.uk/news.html AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 13 March 2009 | News Arts Quarter surveys cultural organisations’ income  36 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
