ACE plans to match crowdfunding for Music Education Hubs
In response to a 2017 pilot project that found arts and heritage crowdfunding donations increased by 17% when the project was match-funded, Arts Council England is planning to develop further projects to support Music Education Hubs (MEHs) nationwide with match funding.
An article on Arts Professional states that “A contract has been advertised for a supplier “to project manage and deliver crowdfunding projects for MEHs”, including reference to “an online crowdfunding platform”.
The brief says: “The supplier will coordinate a campaign for MEHs to secure match-funding from ACE towards agreed crowdfunded projects” and the contract will include providing training and networking for fundraisers and project leads at MEHs.”
