The Digital Accelerator provides funding, expert technical assistance, and leadership development over two years to strengthen the digital infrastructure of nonprofit cultural organisations with the principal goals of growing revenue, increasing fundraising, engaging audiences, improving operations, and developing programming opportunities.
Implementing a successful digital project can pose significant challenges even for the most well-resourced organisation. This program was designed in recognition of those challenges, providing participants support and structure to develop a viable project plan, build internal alignment, manage the competing demands of implementation, and document what works and what doesn’t to ensure organisational learning and growth. The program is cohort-based, with peer organisations from across the country and internationally sharing difficulties and successes to help build a broader base of knowledge about technology and culture.
