The Foundation Center offers these key findings from GIA's ninth snapshot of foundation giving to arts and culture. The definition of arts and culture used for this snapshot is based on the National Taxonomy of Exempt Entities and encompasses funding for the performing arts, museums, visual arts, multidisciplinary arts, media and communications, humanities, and historical preservation. Most important, the findings tell us about the changes in foundation giving for the arts between 2007 and 2008 by a matched set of 493 funders1 and the distribution of 2008 arts and culture giving by a larger sample of 1,490 foundations. They are based on all arts grants of $10,000 or more reported to the Foundation Center by these sets of the largest US foundations, hereafter referred to as "the sample."2 The center has conducted annual examinations of the giving patterns of the nation's largest foundations for more than three decades.
