Tracking Changes in Corporate Sponsorship and Private Donations 2009

Now in its ninth year the Tracking Changes in Corporate Sponsorship and Private Donations 2009 Survey, a project of the Australian Major Performing Arts Group (AMPAG), clearly demonstrates the success of the 28 non profit, major performing arts companies in securing private and corporate income. The Survey tracks and analyses levels of corporate sponsorship and private donations for the major performing arts sector for the years 2001 – 2009.


Report findings show that total sponsorship and philanthropic support over the nine year period has increased $18.4 million or 60.8 percent since 2001, when the Survey first commenced, with earnings continuing to track ahead of CPI levels. However companies did not remain completely unscathed from the global financial crisis with a slight decline of $0.1 million (0.3 per cent) in earnings on 2009 figures.
