Join this teleconference to hear how The Pew Charitable Trusts founded the powerful online management tool, The New York Cultural Data Project (CDP), which is designed to strengthen arts and cultural organizations in 2004 in Pennsylvania. Today 13 states have implemented the Cultural Data Project. The New York Cultural Data Project (CDP) has been growing in New York State since its launch in 2009. 
Over 1,800 organizations have registered their information in the New York database. This groundbreaking project gathers reliable, longitudinal data on the sector. What difference has it made to arts and cultural organizations in our state?  Many Upstate New York funders accept data from the New York State CDP as one part of their grant application processes. What is the advantage they see in this?


  • How this tool has impacted arts and cultural organizations
  • New directions for the CDP and how funders and nonprofits are using the database to better define their community impact
