State of Heritage Funding Now Research Report, Arts & Business Scotland

Wavehill was appointed by Arts & Business Scotland to deliver a research project and report which would focus on where the heritage sector in Scotland currently stands in terms of resources and fundraising. The purpose of the research was to reflect on the changes in the funding landscape for heritage in Scotland, identify the challenges faced by the sector as well as the opportunities in fundraising. The research was been commissioned as a legacy piece in relation to the Resourcing Scotland’s Heritage (RSH) training and capacity building programme which provided fundraising support to the sector for four years. The RSH programme was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund Catalyst grants programme, which aimed to encourage more private giving to heritage organisations, and to build the capacity and skills of heritage organisations to fundraise from private sources. The evaluation methodology comprised a combination of desk research, consultation with key stakeholders and a survey of heritage organisations in Scotland.
