If your arts or heritage organisation can secure in-kind support for materials, space or commercial sponsorship for your activities, then the Culture & Business Fund Scotland, administered by Arts and Business Scotland, can provide an incredible pound for pound match fund.

There are two routes available:

  • Smaller funds of between £1,000 and £3,000 (excluding VAT)
  • Larger funds of over £3,000 and up to £40,000 (excluding VAT)

First time sponsorship is prioritised along with organisations with little or no previous success in gaining sponsorship. In addition, if the arts or heritage organisation can secure a commitment from the business for sponsorship in one or two subsequent years, follow on funding is also available.

Any not-for-profit organisation that fits within the criteria of the fund can apply.
