Our overall fundraising goal is to raise £3 million over four years, achieved in two phases.

Phase 1 saw us raise £30,000 to enable us to employ professional fundraising consultants who specialise in fundraising and development services to the arts and heritage sector in England.

In Phase 2, the consultants will work with the board of CVPA in accessing the institutional funding, major donors and private philanthropists that will enable building to begin and the project to be taken through to completion.

Phase 1

Primarily took the form of community events. Valley Arts put on a wide range of performances, appealing to the wider community, in venues across the Chew Valley. These include concerts, professional theatre productions, The Packhouse Ceilidh and the Valley Arts Autumn Family Festival, now in it's second year.

Phase 2

The consultants will assist the trustees in developing our draft fundraising plan:
