Abstract

"Cover Story" piece on funding for small arts organizations, which are finding it tougher to win their share of corporate donations even though the Maine economy is booming and Maine corporations are prosperous. Bigger, more established art groups like the Portland Museum of Art and Portland Symphony are getting most of the money and some say that is partly due to the fact that many large Maine corporations have been taken over by out-of-state firms that have little or no knowledge of or commitment to smaller, local art groups. Officials at the Maine Community Foundation and the Maine Philanthropy Center say corporate funding in general has diminished for small art groups over the last few years because larger corporations get more recognition by contributing to larger organizations.
