The National Center for Arts Research (NCAR) at Southern Methodist University issued its second report, drawing on CDP and other data, that examines the financial, operating, engagement and staffing health of the nonprofit arts industry. The Center, the first of its kind in the nation, investigates important issues in arts management and patronage, making its findings available to arts leaders, funders, policymakers, researchers and the general public.
Dance/NYC has released “State of NYC Dance and Corporate Giving” in collaboration with the CDP. The report reveals the activity, economics, and labor of New York City dance, and dives more deeply into the state of corporate giving to the art form than ever before. By spotlighting revenue streams, the report aims to inform private sector practices and create entry points to the sector for artists and companies.
“Capitalization, Scale, and Investment: Does Growth Equal Gain,” a follow-up report to 2009’s “Getting Beyond Breakeven,” was released TDC after being commissioned by the William Penn Foundation. The report, coauthored by Susan Nelson and Juliana Koo using CDP data, examines changes in arts and cultural organization finances over time and the effect of growth on these organizations’ financial health.
