Learn about Foundation Support for Arts Education
Re-issued in October 2005, Foundation Funding for Arts Education: An Overview of Recent Trends (pdf), remains the first in-depth study of foundation support for arts education.  The report, which analyzes the distribution of arts education funding between 1999 and 2003, found that grantmaking grew faster in arts education than overall arts giving and that programs serving children and youth received more than 40 percent of the $208.8 million given for arts education by the largest U.S. foundations.  The report was funded by the Wallace Foundation and gives brief profiles of the top arts education grantmakers.
