As a follow-up study to GIA’s National Capitalization Project, TDC, together with GIA, conducted a review of grantmakers using capitalization concepts in their work with organizations.
The National Capitalization Project, initiated by Grantmakers in the Arts and facilitated by TDC, brought together regional and national funders to share ideas about how funders can respond to capitalization challenges in the nonprofit sector. TDC prepared a literature review about capitalization and summarized the outcomes of the initiative.
After years of working with individual history institutions, TDC launched a study of the broader history system to determine: “Can we imagine a system where — rather than requiring each institution to undertake the full spectrum of collection, preservation and interpretation activities — institutions assume more focused and defined roles that, taken together, result in collective success?” This report is a summary of TDC’s hypothesis and interviews with history leaders across the sector.
