Take your fundraising to the next level with MATCH Lab

MATCH Lab, Creative Partnerships Australia’s matched funding program, provides independent artists with professional development and dollar-for-dollar matched funding for fundraising campaigns.

The program supports artists to build fundraising skills, increase knowledge of philanthropy and arts partnerships, develop broader arts business knowledge and create sustainable sources of revenue for their work into the future.

If you’re successful, you’ll take part in a professional development clinic AND be eligible for matched funding for your fundraising campaign.

Artists come from all states and territories across Australia and deliver projects across a wide range of art forms; from circus and physical theatre, dance and film to community arts, architecture and design and events.


We offer up to 25 places nationally to participate in MATCH Lab. Participants will be fully supported to attend the professional development clinic.

MATCH Lab supports campaigns hosted through the Australian Cultural Fund or any other fundraising platform.  Find out more and apply.
