The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage (the Center) collectively enhances the cultural life of the Philadelphia region by funding artists and projects of excellence, courage, and imagination in Management. The program seeks to strengthen the management capacity of cultural organizations in Greater Philadelphia in ways that propel programmatic excellence and help organizations engage audiences. The Center does not see organizational development as an end in itself, but rather as a set of activities that propel and support continuous improvement in an organization's programming and ability to effectively engage audiences. Our Management program therefore works in concert with the other disciplines at the Center to focus its support on organizations that have demonstrated a history of programmatic excellence, to help them build administrative and adaptive capacity to meet the challenges of a changing economy, ever-shifting audiences, and an increasingly competitive cultural sector.
