California Cultural Data Project Launches

I recently attended a training session for the new California Cultural Data Project, an important new collaboration between major funders including the Getty Foundation and the James Irvine Foundation. Nonprofits applying for arts and cultural grants from these organizations must now submit their application using an online database that collects and systematizes financial data. The hope is that the project will streamline the funding application process and aggregate information on the sector.

The Cultural Data Project was launched in 2004 in Pennsylvania, where nonprofits and charitable organizations found great value in collaborating and systematizing data collection. More funders will be joining this year, and the project may expand to other California sectors if successful. Visit www.caculturaldata.org for more details.
