Our 43 successful ACF BOOST recipients

We’re excited to announce the 43 successful recipients of ACF BOOST, our one-off funding initiative for ACF first-timers.

This group of independent arts, artistic groups and arts organisations from around the country will fundraise for a diverse range of projects across a number of artforms. They’ll be fundraising between now and 30 June 2018 to secure a $2,000 boost to put towards their project, thanks to Creative Partnerships Australia’Plus1 program.

Not only will ACF Boost match the donations they raise, all donations over $2 to the Australian Cultural Fund are tax deductible! So take a look at all of the live campaigns, show your support, and double the value of your donation!

Thank you to everyone who applied to ACF BOOST and congratulations to all the successful recipients – we received over 140 applications for this highly competitive funding round.
