Cultural Heritage Organizations: Nonprofits that Support Traditional, Ethnic, Folk, and Noncommercial Popular Culture

The Urban Institute monograph Cultural Heritage Organizations: Nonprofits That Support Traditional, Ethnic, Folk, and Noncommercial Popular Culture (29 pages, PDF) examines the structure, finances, and programs of U.S. nonprofit cultural heritage organizations. Among its findings, the report notes that the groups are fundamentally community-oriented and offer a broad range of programs for diverse audiences, but that they also tend to be small and lack the resources of other nonprofit arts and humanities organizations.
