Double your crowdfunding dollars with MATCH

Do you have an artistic project to fund and an amazing crowdfunding campaign in mind?

Applications are now open for MATCH, our dollar-for-dollar matched funding program for Australian artists and artistic groups.


In Australia and internationally, matched funding programs have proven an effective incentive for leveraging private sector support to the arts.

The aim of MATCH is to help artists identify and secure private sector support, assist them in their artistic endeavours and build a sustainable arts practice.

If your application is successful we’ll match any funding you raise through your project’s crowdfunding campaign, up to a total of $10,000 per project.

We’ll support campaigns hosted through our Australian Cultural Fund or any other crowdfunding platform. The choice of platform is up to the applicant.

Please read the guidelines thoroughly for information on eligibility, assessment, program phases and acquittal.
