MacKenzie Scott and Dan Jewett Give High-Impact Arts Organizations Transformational Funding Gifts

07-06-2021

MacKenzie Scott and Dan Jewett are gifting $2.739 billion to 268 organizations that work to support and center new voices and “build power from within communities.” In a short post on her blog titled “Seeding by Ceding,” Scott explains her perspective, describing how wealth has established and maintained systems of inequity, and advocating for donors to be decentralized from processes of change. Through an unsolicited review process, several arts organizations in our community received large gifts. Congratulations to Play on Philly, Arts Administrators of Color, Atlanta Music Project, and Community MusicWorks, to name just four of those among us included in the 268 awardees.
