Milton Keynes Arts Centre has been given Arts Council funding of £150,000.
The centre in Great Linford is among 140 organisations across England to receive funding to support more successful and sustainable fundraising activities.
The news comes as the Arts Council today announces the successful applicants to the Catalyst: Evolve programme.
Catalyst: Evolve is a new initiative that aims to support organisations with a limited track record in fundraising to attract more private giving.
“We’re really pleased to be able to support so many organisations across the South East to develop their fundraising capacity,” said Peter Heslip, director, South East, Arts Council England.
“We were impressed by the level of demand for this scheme from the arts sector keen to develop new income streams and philanthropic networks.
“I look forward to seeing all of them realise their plans over the next three years.”
