Cultural Data Project Launches in Illinois

  • Posted May 01, 2009

We are pleased to announce the launch of the Illinois Cultural Data Project (Illinois CDP), the fourth state to utilize the CDP’s powerful financial, programmatic and operational management tools. The Illinois CDP is a collaborative, statewide effort supported by public and private funders and advocacy agencies throughout Illinois.

Use of the CDP will help arts and cultural organizations improve their financial and operational management capacity, while the data collected will inform research and advocacy.  In addition, CDP data will help funders to plan for and evaluate their individual and collective grantmaking activities more effectively.f
