New Insight Hub Brief Focuses on How to Support Vermont’s Arts and Cultural Organizations

Vermont Community Foundation releases new Insight Hub Brief – August 25, 2021:

Early in 2021, the Vermont Community Foundation officially launched its Insight Hub to provide charitable Vermonters with actionable insight to inform their giving. Powered by the Community Foundation’s experience and research, and informed by the lived experience of Vermonters, the Insight Hub offers webinars, events, briefs, and peer-to-peer experiences that help philanthropists understand where their giving can make a difference in Vermont. The latest brief shares three actions to take today to support Vermont’s arts and cultural organizations.

“How do you plan a budget when you don’t know what your box office is going to look like or what your sales are going to look like. It’s a profoundly unsettling time,” notes Karen Mittelman, executive director of the Vermont Arts Council.
