For the last 35 years Arts & Business has been collecting data on the reach of private sector support for culture. In doing so, it has created an authoritative and valuable longitudinal study that is unmatched anywhere in the world.
John J Studzinski is tireless in his support and patronage of the arts worldwide. In the UK, his philanthropic work spans over two decades, and in 2001 his contributions in the field of the arts were formalised through the establishment of the Genesis Foundation.
In the North East of England, as elsewhere outside of the capital, the dearth of philanthropic giving to the arts is oft lamented.

Arts organisations across the UK have benefitted from the support of the Liz and Terry Bramall Foundation but in their home county of Yorkshire their support for the arts remains unsurpassed by any other charitable foundation or individual donor in the region.
