Over a period of three years, Arkansas foundation giving has reached more than $690 million dollars. The framework for this session will be Philanthropy Southwest’s third landscape study on philanthropic giving in the Southwest. The session will also offer an historic perspective on foundation giving in Arkansas and the surrounding region. In that context, the presentation will provide an in-depth analysis of giving along such interest vectors as rural and urban disparities and areas supported, from the arts and education to human services, health, and the environment. Kathy Jankowski is the founder and research director of Jankowski Associates.
