The Flinn-Piper Strengthening the Arts Initiative

(4-7-10) Responding to a gap left by the wind-down of the Metro Phoenix Partnership for Arts and Culture, the Flinn Foundation and the Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust will be redirecting $1.25 million in grant funds to the Flinn-Piper Strengthening the Arts Initiative. The Fund will award up to $750,000 in grants to implement new nonprofit structures, processes, and collaborative ventures to increase revenue and reduce costs.

"Flinn does not provide general operating support as a rule but has made an exception given the urgent needs of arts and culture organizations, according to Jack Jewett, president and CEO, Flinn Foundation." Quoted from the press release, available here.
