Funding for SMU DataArts

Bloomberg Philanthropies is rallying behind the merger with major support for SMU DataArts’ first three years of operations. The one-time costs associated with creating the combined entity are funded in part by leading contributions from SMU DataArts board members and respected Dallas philanthropists Diane and Hal Brierley, Melissa and Trevor Fetter and Donna Wilhelm, all of whom have been major supporters of NCAR since its inception. Additional gifts for transition expenses have been made by the Better Together Fund and The Greater Philadelphia Nonprofit Repositioning Fund.
