Technical enhancements, done in real time, for something often a "low priority": Three reasons why Levy Foundation's digitization gift to NY Philharmonic is important.

"Philanthropic organizations frequently award grants with the sole intention of boosting digitization efforts at recipient nonprofits. Take academia, for example. Countless universities have received millions for digitization efforts from large funders like the Gates and the Mellon Foundation. But it isn't very often that the recipient of an ambitious, multi-million dollar digitization grant is a performing arts organization. In this case, the recipient in question is the New York Philharmonic, and what they plan do to with the money is even more intriguing." -- Mike Scutari, Inside Philanthropy
