This year, Grantmakers in the Arts formed the Arts Education Funders Coalition, a group of funders concerned with the inequities of our public education system and determined that their investments should not be undermined by federal policy that ignores those inequities. Working with Penn Hill Group, the Coalition will identify opportunities and policies to enhance arts education at the federal level.
