Here is an example of creating additional funding for underserved audiences by the Committee on Responsive Philanthropy. Their campaign, Philanthropy’s Promise, has persuaded over 100 funders to designate at least half of their grant dollars for underserved communities.

This effort developed from research done by CRP including a report by Holly Sidford, Fusing Arts, Culture and Social Change, which was done in collaboration with several folklorists, and highlighted the disparities in funding in the arts.
