Giving Attitude has provided a comprehensive picture of private sector support in the arts sector across Australia.

Giving Attitude, a survey of private sector support for arts and culture, is designed to inform policy and aide in advocacy for investment in the arts. Reporting both quantitative data and a reflection of sentiment towards fundraising in the sector, each edition builds on the previous and with subsequent surveys, will enable trends to be monitored, including the impact of external factors on private sector support.
