Culture is who we are.
The Australian Cultural Fund is a fundraising platform for Australian artists. It is operated by Creative Australia and was established by the Australian Government in 2003 to encourage donations to the arts.
Through the ACF, artists upload their project, start their fundraising campaign and invite art lovers and supporters to donate.
Unlike all-or-nothing fundraising platforms, ACF artists set a fundraising goal, but if it’s not met all donations are still taken into account.
Donations over $2 are tax deductible, and supporters get the chance to make a real difference to the work of Australian artists.
Culture is what we do.
The ACF has helped to raise millions of dollars for Australian artists, allowing them to share their stories, passion, and creativity around Australia and the world.
The Australian Cultural Fund is operated by Creative Australia, and has endorsement as a deductible gift recipient (DGR) confirmed by the Australian Tax Office.
Creative Australia is a cultural organisation under the Register of Cultural Organisations (ROCO), which is maintained by the Office for the Arts in the Australian Government’s Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications.
