Culture is who we are.
The Australian Cultural Fund is a fundraising platform for Australian artists. It is managed by Creative Partnerships 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 donors commit funds. While artists set a fundraising goal, if it’s not met at the end of the campaign all donations are still taken into account.
Donations over $2 are tax deductible through the ACF, 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.
Creative Partnerships Australia is a not-for-profit organisation supported by the Australian Government through the Department of Communications and the Arts. Creative Partnerships’ unique Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status allows the ACF to offer tax deductibility to donors.
