European Foundation Centre (EFC);
The field of arts and culture is at the core of philanthropy, and is among the most important areas of funding for philanthropic organisations in Europe. This mapping, produced by the EFC's Arts and Culture Thematic Network, sheds light on how activities carried out by the organisations engaged in this field are diverse in both themes and approaches, covering different sub-areas and with a clear interest in multidisciplinary arts and crosscutting areas and issues.

Sillerman Center for the Advancement of Philanthropy;
This brief discusses how grantmakers can redress long-standing inequalities in arts and culture philanthropy by directing more dollars to historically marginalized communities and by adopting strategies that upend traditional funding structures that have excluded artists of color and under-resourced communities.
National Center for Arts Research (NCAR);
What factors make up a community's arts vibrancy, and which cities possess them? While the complex mixture of attributes is a large puzzle to piece together, it is increasingly sought after by civic leaders, funders and policy makers. As a contribution to this growing interest, we have undertaken an analytical assessment of arts vibrancy across U.S. cities and developed the Arts Vibrancy Index, a set of data-based indices that highlight metropolitan areas whose arts and culture scenes pulsate with vigor and activity in a variety of ways.
Community Foundation for Greater Atlanta;
Provides an overview of Atlanta area arts and cultural organizations; the role of the arts in education, youth engagement, community development, and support for underserved populations; and the foundation's support for the arts between 2005 and 2009.
The Foundation Center offers these key findings from GIA's sixth snapshot of foundation giving to arts and culture. The definition of arts and culture used for this snapshot is based on the National Taxonomy of Exempt Entities and encompasses funding for the performing arts, museums, visual arts, multidisciplinary arts, media and communications, humanities, and historical societies/ historical preservation. Most importantly the findings tell us about the changes in foundation giving for the arts between 2003 and 2004 and the distribution of 2004 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 1,172 of the largest U.S. foundations. (footnote 1) The Center has conducted annual examinations of the giving patterns of the nation's largest foundations for almost three decades
Published in the Winter 2018 edition of GIA Reader, the latest edition of GIA's annual Arts Funding Snapshot will include "Foundation Grants to Arts and Culture, 2015," based on the most recent completed year of Foundation Center data, and "Public Funding for the Arts, 2017," prepared by the National Assembly of State Art Agencies (NASAA). Reina Mukai, research manager for the Foundation Center, and Ryan Stubbs, research director for NASAA, share their insight into what these findings reveal about the current arts grantmaking environment.
James Irvine Foundation;
Arts and culture play a significant role in the daily lives of Californians. The state is noteworthy for the avid participation of its people, the diversity and abundance of its arts organizations and the varied regional characteristics of its arts sector. California's regions reflect distinctive populations, participation rates, numbers and types of arts and culture organizations, and levels of arts funding.These points are drawn from a new report, California's Arts and Cultural Ecology, created by Markusen Economic Research for The James Irvine Foundation. The report is based on data gathered from multiple sources describing the California arts and culture sector and public involvement, and includes a detailed technical appendix. Access the full research at www.irvine.org/ArtsEcology.Presented here in highlight form, this information is intended to guide the approaches of arts and culture leaders, funders and policymakers. It invites further investigation by interested researchers, and offers Californians deeper understanding of how they and their communities fit into the state's arts and culture ecology. Plus, it encourages the growing practice of integrating arts into initiatives in education, housing, health care and other areas of community well-being.The research featured here affirms, and extends well beyond, the economic benefits of arts and culture. It sheds new light on the role of this sector in the lives of Californians, illustrating its significance to people and communities throughout the nation's most-populated and diverse state.A note on participation. As new data sets and measures become available, future studies can more fully describe participation by including emerging ways people experience arts and culture, for example, through digital technology and via online communities. They may also further distinguish forms of deep engagement; for example, making art and practicing cultural traditions, versus attending events or exhibits.
