The Culture Fund of Zimbabwe Trust is an organization that provides financial and technical support to cultural practitioners, institutions, and activities with the ultimate aim of contributing to the development of the cultural sector in Zimbabwe. The Fund works with artists, institutions, associations, promoters, administrators, and other experts on projects that include performances, festivals, exhibitions, workshops, research, and other programming. The Fund was set up to assist Zimbabweans with access to finance, skills, and markets.
