A groundbreaking new study has found that charitable giving levels among African-American, Asian-American and Latino donors interviewed in the New York metropolitan region were higher, with an overall average (median) of $5,000, than the national averages for households that give but do not volunteer ($1,620) as well as for households that practice both ($2,295)1. In addition, while there were differences in giving across ethnic lines, the most substantial differences were between older and younger generations -- those born before and after the enactment of the Civil Rights legislation and immigration reforms in the mid-1960s. The study was conducted by the Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society at The Graduate Center of The City University of New York in partnership with the Coalition for New Philanthropy, an initiative to advance philanthropy in communities of color.
Installed in the Graduate Center's Exhibition Hallway, this show features expressive portraits by the noted Venetian painter and master etcher Domenico Tiepolo (1727-1804), including 24 of the 60 prints forming the Raccolta di Teste (Collection of Heads) plus one related drawing. Read more
