Private Funding Partnership Working in UK

A program designed to bring private investment to the arts in northwest England seems to be having a real impact. “Companies in the region have pumped £500,202 into arts projects under the Arts & Business New Partners scheme, up from £107,840 in the 2002/3 financial year. And Arts & Business North West, the not-for-profit organisation which runs the project and offers to match business contributions, itself invested £277,061, compared to just £80,670 a year ago.”
