Monograph: Will Venture Philanthropy Revolutionize the Arts?
Are significant new trends developing in philanthropy or are we witnessing an evolution that has been underway for decades? Are the new donors so different from their predecessors? This Monograph examines these questions, and considers how the trends are affecting giving in the cultural sector and the associated lessons for arts agencies.
Americans for the Arts’ Monograph series featured in-depth issue papers on topics that were of the greatest interest to our members and arts professionals at the time. They often still serve as excellent resources for best practices and historic reference for today’s issues. Monographs were produced from 1993–2010. Monographs from 2001-2010 are available for downloadable in PDF format our online store at a nominal fee for nonmembers but free to members. All monographs from 1993-2000 are available for free download via the National Arts Administration and Policy Publications Database.
