Philanthropy
Our towns are nationally famous for the monetary contributions that corporations, foundations, and individuals make to the common good. Our museums and arts organizations large and small, our many and diverse social service nonprofits, think tanks, colleges, universities, and charities--all have benefited from a philanthropic largesse that grows out of a spirit of service. Our large foundations have a national reach, while corporate giants like Target and Medtronic supply a great deal of the material basis of our well-known art scene.
