Member Spotlight on The Kresge Foundation
For the month of October, GIA’s website and weekly member bulletin feature work from arts organizations supported by The Kresge Foundation
. Established by Sebastian S. Kresge in 1924, the $3.5 billion foundation works nationally to “establish opportunities in America’s cities through grantmaking and social investing in arts and culture, education, environment, health, human services, and community development in Detroit.” The Kresge Foundation is the Anchor Sponsor of the 2017 GIA Conference.
Next Webinar: Addressing Accessibility in Arts Funding Programs, Events, and Materials
The next GIA webinar, Addressing Accessibility in Arts Funding Programs, Events, and Materials
will take place on Tuesday, November 14, 2:00pm EST / 11:00am PST. Accessibility barriers that impact individuals with disabilities and older adults are often invisible to funders developing and managing grantmaking programs and grantee events. In this session, Anne Mulgrave with Greater Pittsburgh Arts Council, Raz Rifkind with Chicago Community Trust, and Betty Siegel with the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts will discuss why accessibility is a social justice issue for arts philanthropy and
how to identify and reduce barriers to access in funding programs, events, and materials.
