Harnessing the Power of the Arts to Enhance Communities | Bloomberg Philanthropies Annual Report 2020

While the COVID-19 pandemic has changed how people view and experience art, the role artists and cultural organizations play in making cities more vibrant places to live has never been more important.

Bloomberg Philanthropies works to ensure better, longer lives for the greatest number of people by focusing on five key areas: the arts, education, the environment, government innovation, and public health.

Encompassing all of Mike Bloomberg’s giving, Bloomberg Philanthropies includes his foundation, corporate, and personal philanthropy as well as Bloomberg Associates, a pro bono consultancy that works with mayors in cities around the world.
