NAYT Fundraisers Network

Thursday 28 May 2020

In May 2020 we were pleased to receive news that Arts Fundraising and Philanthropy ( have agreed to support us to set up a brand new network to support our members with fundraising. We know that for many Youth Theatres, funding is a huge issue and we all need money to enable us to carry on delivering the important work that we do in our communities. 

After holding fundraising surgeries at 2019’s Raising The Game, we decided that we wanted to do something more to help the sector in skilling up in this area and, with the help of this recent scheme, we are now in a position to do so. 


Our Fundraisers Network will be open to anyone working within Youth Theatre who has a responsibility for raising funds whether that is through grants, donations, events or managing earned income streams or has an interest in developing these skills in order to communicate better with those who do that role in your organisation. We will be holding three webinars with fundraising experts between now and September, facilitating online conversations to offer peer to peer support and encouraging you to share your outcomes and successes with us along the way.


If you would like to join this network, please complete the form here (


We will be in touch with the webinar programme very soon. Registrations for this network will remain open so don’t worry if you forget, you can always come back and register at any time. 


Membership of the network is for those associated with NAYT member organisations but membership costs are currently frozen so this is a great opportunity to get involved.
