Lonnie Firestone
CANVAS Compendium

This article in the CANVAS Compendium, a newsletter for funders of Jewish arts and culture, describes how the Barr-Klarman Massachusetts Arts Initiative (BKMAI), a partnership between two foundations that provides support and stability for arts nonprofits, can be seen as a model for other funders to emulate. Organizations in this six-year initiative receive multiyear unrestricted operating grants coupled with capacity-building support for board and staff leadership (including individualized coaching, technical assistance, and cohort learning opportunities with expert trainers focused on building financial health and financial sustainability).
