We know that large-scale changes cannot be achieved in the short term, nor can they be realized by one organization acting alone. In each priority area (Art, Music, Theatre, Dance, and Performing Arts as a whole) we contribute to a collective approach by engaging stakeholders, conducting research, funding policy analysis and communicating in a way that garners the attention of the public, grant committees, and policymakers.
We work together with grantors and other partners to identify solutions to pressing issues and develop high-impact strategies to make an impact. Sometimes strategies are identified by a coalition or working group that is focused on the priority area. Sometimes the good ideas come from grantees or potential grantees. And sometimes we identify opportunities based on research, emerging practices or the good work of other funders.
Each grant typically has an area of dedicated allocation of funding to support stakeholder engagement, leadership development, knowledge building, program standards and quality transformation, and policy alignment. We know how to tap into those key areas and ensure you get the funding needed to make a difference in your program, non-profit, and mission.
