Five ways Social Finance can transform arts organizations

Below is an except from a message sent  from Sandy Houston, Metcalf’s President and CEO, to sector partners and colleagues in our Performing Arts Program.

In January, we will be publishing a Metcalf Innovation Fellowship paper that looks at some transformative opportunities that social finance tools and instruments could bring to the arts.

We thought we would share a brief excerpt from the report — the top five ways that social finance can build resilience in the arts sector. We hope these insights pique your interest and spark your imagination.

We also have one small request. To help us gauge the sector’s knowledge and interest in social finance, please consider completing the short 20-second survey. This survey also lets us know if you would like to be on the priority distribution list for More than Money: How social finance can build resilience in the arts sector, by Elizabeth MacKinnon and Christine Pellerin.

We look forward to hearing from you and to lively discussions about possibilities and practical applications for social finance and performing arts organizations in Canada.

Metcalf Foundation activities are continuing during the COVID-19 pandemic. Learn more about our response here.
