Section Description

This course will examine the sources, characteristics, and consequences of cultural philanthropy in the United States.  Course goals are both to convey a broad understanding of cultural philanthropy and to explore the practical implications of how private philanthropy works for those engaged in seeking and awarding support. The course will compare different types of private funders, examine the relationship of philanthropy to overall support for culture (including public subsidy and policy) and assess the impact of philanthropy on the arts. Exercises and cases will be used to translate broad themes to practical issues related to formulating and implementing strategies for seeking resources and supporting arts and culture.
