This week in Boston, MA, The annual Grantmakers in the Arts conference began over this past weekend. The conference is open by invitation only to all the big foundations and funders to share their perspectives on who they fund and what they are interested in funding next.Â Personally I think this conferenceÂ should be open to the public but, if you go to their website, Â you canÂ check out the sessions running through out the conference.
Â I thinkÂ from the narritive description of eachÂ session listed,Â the kinds of topics, issues and trends funders are addressing, or considering addressing,Â in their funding are evident. Very interesting and helpful if you are looking for money to fund your next project or further develop your current organization.
