A Boston Foundation 2016 report on Arts funding revealed that Boston receives the lowest level of government funding for the arts per capita when compared with 10 other cities nationally. Join us for an opportunity to hear directly from national arts leaders, hailing from the report's comparison cities, as they share stories and lessons learned from recent advocacy efforts that have allowed their communities to secure and maintain robust public funding and support for the arts, and what the increase in support has meant for their communities.
Help the Boston Foundation have an impact by supporting these initiatives.

At the heart of everything the Boston Foundation has done over the last century—every grant it has made, every innovation it has supported, every cause it has championed—is its endowment, the Permanent Fund for Boston. Established through bequests left by hundreds of visionary and forward-thinking Bostonians since 1917, this essential fund fuels all of the Foundation’s work and provides the resources that have sparked positive change and enabled new ideas.
