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.
