BLOOMBERG PHILANTHROPIES IS STRENGTHENING THE ARTS AND CULTURE LANDSCAPE AROUND THE WORLD

SUPPORTING CULTURAL INSTITUTIONS AND EMPOWERING ARTISTS

Diminished support for cultural institutions – from both government and private funding sources – has made it a challenge for many cultural organizations around the country to sustain their momentum and focus on producing and presenting creative work.

Through unique programs and partnerships, Bloomberg Philanthropies is helping arts and cultural organizations learn vital strategies to better manage their operations and access new funding sources.

Our Arts program utilizes innovative partnerships and bold approaches to place arts at the center of economic growth and empower artists and cultural organizations.
