Spotlight On Arts & Culture | August 12, 2019 | Who Funds Arts & Culture? Local Philanthropy by WPKN Community Radio published on 2019-08-14T18:45:56Z Hosted by David Green of The Cultural Alliance Of Fairfield County. Our August 2019 conversation was with two local arts and culture funders: a community foundation, the New Canaan Community Foundation, and a legal firm, Pullman & Comley In "Who Funds Arts & Culture? A Window into Local Philanthropy,” we spoke with Lauren Patterson, Executive Director of the New Canaan Community Foundation, and Kelly O’Donnell, with the law firm of Pullman & Comley, about how both organizations fund arts and culture in their communities across Connecticut. What issues factor into their decisions about what to fund and what processes do they use to come to decisions? Hear their fascinating ideas about what makes a community and how both funders encourage collaboration by their grantees and collaborate themselves with other funders to produce exponential results.
