In the dynamic realm of arts and culture, financial support can be a catalyst for transformative change. Arts & Culture Finance, a pioneering organisation, leverages social impact investment to champion the endeavours of arts and cultural organisations that significantly enhance the lives of individuals and communities.

At the heart of their initiative are three impactful funds. The Arts & Culture Impact Fund, the world's largest of its kind, allocates a substantial £23 million to support UK-wide organisations with a demonstrated social impact. The Cultural Impact Development Fund, with £3.7 million, caters to smaller-scale initiatives in England committed to refining their impact practices. The Arts Impact Fund, although closed for new investments, has left an indelible mark by injecting £8.8 million across 27 organisations between 2015 and 2019.

Arts & Culture Finance believes that the arts are not only a source of inspiration, challenge, and education but also crucial for economic growth and community development. Their vision encompasses a society where a resilient arts and culture sector actively contributes to positive social change, fostering a widespread understanding of its inherent value.
