CAMPAIGN FOR THE ARTS 

Our mission is to champion, defend and expand access to art and culture, for and with the public. We create projects, initiatives and well-researched information to inform people, express the value of the arts to contemporary society, and ensure that everyone in the UK has opportunities to experience and participate in the arts.
Analysis by Giving is Great

Positives:

  • The charity has received modest backing from a grant maker
  • There has been strong growth in spending over the last 5 years
  • There have been no material income shortfalls in recent years
  • The Board appears to be well diversified in terms of age and gender and dynamic in terms of composition

Regulatory & Governance issues to consider:

  • Over half the Board have joined recently

Financial issues to consider:

  • A PartB annual return has not been required and so detailed financial information is not available from the online data
