Volunteer fundraiser needed

Brighton & Hove Arts Council is looking for someone to help with our fundraising activities

If you would be interested in helping us out, please read the following information and contact us via the form at the bottom of this page. We will then arrange an informal meeting with you to discuss the position.

About BHAC and funding

The charity is run by a team of volunteers, whose aim is to support and promote the local not-for-profit arts community.

Our member groups are involved in fine art, music, theatre, poetry, the written word, and other aspects of the arts. Every quarter we publish an Arts Diary, where our members list their events, and this is widely available across the area. Demand for this publication is growing and we would like to increase distribution volume.

We also run an annual Art Show, a Drama Competition, and, every two years, a Poetry Festival. We are also planning a new music event for next year.

All these activities cost money to run and, whilst we receive membership fees from group and private members, plus small grants, we do need to raise more money.

As our fundraiser you will be provided with details of past sponsors and an extensive list of targets.

Skills required

Some experience of fundraising and/or bid writing in the nonprofit arts sector, or similar, is desirable.


  • Playing a vital role in enabling BHAC to further enrich the arts in the local community.
  • Joining an enthusiastic group of people supporting the local arts in all their forms.
  • You will be invited to a private view of our prestigious spring Art Show, to the autumn Drama Awards Ceremony, and the biennial Poetry Festival.

Practical Considerations

  • You will be working a few hours a week, volunteering from home on a flexible basis.
  • Attendance at some of the committee meetings (we meet about eight times per year) would be helpful. These are held in the early evening at a location in central Brighton,  and they are not dull!

When do I need to be available?

Ideally, we would like someone to be available to start as soon as possible.
