Endowments in the Arts

Commissioned by the Secretary of State for Culture, Olympics, Media and Sport 2010

This report was commissioned by the Secretary of State for Culture, Olympics, Media and Sport to look at the use of endowments in the arts. A similar report about the use of endowments in the museums and galleries sector has also been published by Neil MacGregor, Director of the British Museum.

The Arts Council’s report contextualises the use of endowments in the wider landscape of philanthropy and fundraising on the one hand, and an organisation’s capital structure on the other, and makes a number of recommendations to help organisations to fundraise better.
