Philanthropists could unlock true potential of the arts

A new report from New Philanthropy Capital “explores the important role philanthropists have to play in ensuring the future of the arts, and outlines some considerations for anyone seeking to support an arts charity”. It also argues that there is an opportunity for funders to consider how their loyalty to the arts can achieve broader social outcomes.

As reported by Civil Society News, the document also shows the struggle that small arts charities are facing to make their voices heard, in the face of cuts to government arts funding and a London-centric philanthropy focus.
