If we add another layer of data onto the arts-​giving picture, we can see how foundation giving to the arts compares with all other private giving. Below is the most recent data from The Foundation Center on foundation grants to arts groups for 2011. The data are based on a sampling of large foundations and are limited to grants of $10,000 or more awarded by a national sample of 1,122 larger U.S. foundations. For community foundations, only discretionary grants are included. Grants to individuals are not included in the data. The 2011 data show that Pittsburgh is third-​highest per capita, behind only Kansas City and Boston, and well above the benchmark average.
