Cash for Culture - a guide to fundraising for community-based creative groups in Scotland

We commissioned Creative Lives to create this guide to help you access funds in a range of ways. From applying to national funders and trusts to raising money at a local level, there are lots of ways to help your group do what it does best – be creative.

Creative Scotland is pleased to work with Creative Lives to help produce this Cash for Culture guide. We believe that community groups are at the heart of Scotland’s cultural life, providing invaluable opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds to participate in creative activity.

We recognise that it can be difficult to grow this activity, and that understanding the various funding opportunities available is challenging.

We hope this guide will go some way to helping secure support for your activity, and that communities will continue to be transformed through imagination, ambition and an understanding of the potential of creativity.
