Vital Signs: Snapshots of Arts Funding

Jan 01, 2005
  • Description

We offer these key findings from GIA's fifth snapshot of foundation giving to arts and culture. Most importantly the findings tell us about the changes in foundation giving for the arts between 2002 and 2003 and the distribution of 2003 giving among arts and cultural institutions and fields of activity. They are based on arts grants of $10,000 or more reported to the Foundation Center by 1,010 of the largest U.S. foundations. The Center has conducted annual examinations of the giving patterns of the nation's largest foundations for almost three decades
