The following is a post from our friends at Americans for the Arts regarding their latest report about arts funding.
Animating Democracy, a program of Americans for the Arts, has released the report, Trend or Tipping Point: Arts & Social Change Grantmaking. This report assembles a first-time portrait of arts funders, social change funders and others supporting civic engagement and social change through arts and cultural strategies. It includes a companion online Directory of Funders that profiles more than 150 grantmakers who support arts strategies to make community, social and civic change. These resources are part of Animating Democracy’s Arts & Social Change Mapping Initiative, supported by the Nathan Cummings Foundation, CrossCurrents Foundation, Open Society Foundations, Lambent Foundation and Surdna Foundation.
