Brighton & Hove Arts Council is looking for someone to set up a fund-raising operation. The charity is run by a team of volunteers, whose aim is to support and promote the local not-for-profit arts community. 

Our member groups are involved in fine art, music, theatre, poetry, written word and other arts areas. Every quarter we publish Arts Diary where our members list their events, and this is widely available across the area. Demands for this publication is growing and we would like to increase the print size. We also run an annual Art Show, a Drama Competition and every two years a poetry Festival. in addition, we are planning a new music event in 2024.

All these activities cost money to run and whilst we receive membership fees from Group and private members, plus small grants, we do need to raise more money.

This role will be provided with details of past sponsors and an extensive list of targets.


Some experience of fund raising and/or bid writing in the arts/not-for-profit sector or similar desirable.


  • You would be playing a vital role in enabling BHAC to further enrich the arts in the local community.
  • You would be joining an enthusiastic group of people supporting the local arts in all their forms.
  • You would also be invited to our prestigious Spring Art Show Private View, Autumn Drama Awards Ceremony and the biennial Poetry Festival. 

Practical Considerations

  • There are no fixed hours. All that will be required, will be a few hours a week volunteering from home.  
  • Attendance at some of the committee meetings (around 8 meetings per year) would be an advantage, but they are not dull!
  • Meetings are held in the early evening, in Brighton, around 8 times a year.

When do I need to be available?

Details To start as soon as possible. No fixed hours. Requires a few hours a week.
