Supporting ADF

As a small charity, ADF relies on the support of our funders, donors and members. 

We are funded on project to project basis and do not receive funding for our events, workshops or short programmes.

Please consider a donation, however small, to support us in helping our members to develop and thrive as cultural leaders.

ADF is committed to a world where leadership is shared, equitable and diverse, with a creative workforce that is truly reflective of the society it represents. To create that world, we need your help.

Our Founders


Our sector, and indeed our society, is facing massive upheaval and uncertainty. Now, more than ever, we need to ensure that diversity and inclusion are at the forefront of our plans to rebuild for the future. And importantly, we need to be there for our members, to ensure that they are well equipped to step up and step into positions of power.

How to donate: You can make your donation with a debit or credit card using our secure payment online or by calling the team.

Gift Aid: If you are eligible for Gift Aid, make sure you tick the box so that we can claim an additional 25p for every £1 you donate, at no extra cost to you.
