Aug 3, 2021

Last year saw a measurable drop in philanthropic donations to nonprofit arts and culture organizations.

In today’s podcast episode, our panel unpacks these latest findings and provides practical tips for how arts organizations can bridge the perceived gap by next gen donors between the arts and the social impact causes they care most about.
