Recalculating the Formula for Success

New Research on Formulaic Funding

Sunday, October 29, 3:45pm – 4:45pm

Organized by Grantmakers in the Arts.

Presented by Steven Lawrence, Senior Research Affiliate, TCC Group.

Local and state arts agencies, united arts funds, and arts funders supported through voter tax initiatives have historically used formula funding as a primary distribution strategy for general operating funds. This session will discuss how some of these agencies are changing to broaden their funding platforms and provide more equitable access to funds for their entire community. The session features Steven Lawrence, senior research affiliate at TCC Group and formerly director of research at Foundation Center, who authored a research report on the topic published in the summer 2017 edition of the GIA Reader.
