Australian Cultural Fund removes service fee on donations

In response to the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and our commitment to artists and the sector, Creative Partnerships Australia is pleased to announce that from 9am AEDT, 1 December 2021 the service fee on new donations to the Australian Cultural Fund has been removed.

By eliminating the fee, 100% of donations raised by artists on the ACF will go directly to their creative project or initiative, supporting the arts and cultural sector during this time of recovery.

To help relieve the impact of the pandemic on the Australian arts community, the ACF supported campaigns such as the National Assistance Program for the Arts and Theatre Network Australia’s 1000X1000 Crisis Cash for Artists which saw the service fee waived for these COVID-19 response initiatives. We are now excited to be able to extend this initiative across the board for all artists using the ACF platform.
