Our Conclusion:


Based on the Following criteria:

Local Trend is POSITIVE

Local Trend LOCAL TREND:

Much of a community’s arts and cultural environment, events, and performances are organized, promoted, and/or conducted by nonprofit organizations. The largest Albuquerque nonprofit arts and cultural groups report growing individual donations, attendance, and volunteerism and expect continued growth into the future. They also expect that donations from corporations and foundations will increase. The number of arts and cultural groups is increasing and their revenues and assets, as reported to the IRS, have grown between 2003 and 2008.


The Albuquerque area ranks in the middle of peer communities, when comparing the total revenues of arts nonprofits to the Total Personal Income of the community. Albuquerque ranks at the bottom when comparing Personal Income averaged per registered arts and cultural organization. This suggests that revenues from individuals are being maximized and that it might be difficult to maintain growth in the number of arts and cultural groups.

Citizen Perception CITIZEN PERCEPTION:

Residents recognize that the community has made progress, supporting Albuquerque’s arts and culture. Within the goal this condition is highly ranked for importance, especially among women, minorities, and residents of the North Valley, Near Heights, and East Gateway areas.
