Our main activity strands are Education for Young People, Supporting Artists, and Bringing Art to Communities. Fundraising for the development and extension of our three main programs is an essential part of our strategy for securing a sustainable future in an unpredictable economic climate (because it helps us to diversifying our income and mitigate any risks to our longevity).
CAS is funded by a broad range of central government funding through Arts Council England, local government funding, trust funds, businesses and individuals. When a company or individual decide to donate funds to our organisation they contribute to an active, vibrant and diverse programme which plants seeds of relationship, empowerment and growth throughout the region and beyond.
How you can help
We hugely value our individual supporters, whether that support be in time, volunteering or in funds.
If you wish to volunteer
Whatever skills you have, we can look at ways that you can help join with us to make exciting things happen and support the work that we do. For example, you may volunteer to drive The Bus of Many Things to help us bring art events to local communities, or offer your organisation or marketing skills to help us deliver more events in Andover and beyond. To express your interest please contact Susan Francis.
