August Spotlight on Arts & Culture: “Who Funds Arts & Culture? A Window into Local Philanthropy.”
If you missed Monday’s live interview program “Who Funds Arts & Culture? A Window into Local Philanthropy,” on WPKN 89.5FM, the show will soon be available as a podcast on SoundCloud.
Our conversation was with Lauren Patterson, Executive Director of the New Canaan Community Foundation, and Kelly O’Donnell, with the law firm of Pullman & Comley, about how both organizations fund arts and culture in their communities across Connecticut. What issues factor into their decisions about what to fund? Hear their fascinating ideas about what makes a community and how both funders encourage collaboration by their grantees and collaborate themselves with other funders to produce exponential results.
Check in to see when the podcast is available.
