The Copyright Agency also helps support the Australian creative community by funding projects that will support the Australian publishing and visual arts industries. This is known as the Cultural Fund.

We are a not-for-profit organisation, so all amounts received by the Copyright Agency after deduction of our administration fee and the 1.5% allocation to the Cultural Fund, are available for distribution to members. Our administration fee covers our operating costs.
