Arts and Culture

The Flinn Foundation currently has two emphases in its support of arts and culture in Arizona.

One is the Initiative for Financial and Creative Health, a grants program that aims to identify priority capitalization needs among Arizona’s largest arts-and-culture organizations, and design strategies to impact those needs.

The other is DataArts, formerly the Arizona Cultural Data Project, a statewide component of a growing national program to use standardized financial and organizational data to strengthen the effectiveness of arts-and-culture organizations, advocates, and funders.

The Flinn Foundation began funding the arts in 1984 and is one of Arizona’s largest private funders of the sector.
