Arts Funding: An Update on Foundation Trends represents the Foundation Center's third examination of the role of foundations in supporting arts and culture. The Center's first study of national trends, Arts Funding: A Report on Foundation and Corporate Grantmaking Trends, mapped funding for the arts through the 1980s. Arts Funding Revisited: An Update on Foundation Trends in the 1990s, carried the analysis through 1992. This latest study updates the status of arts giving trends through 1996 and includes several new features. All of these reports were developed in collaboration with Grantmakers in the Arts (GIA), a membership organization of foundation and corporate donors.
