The Ann Arbor community foundation crunched the numbers and concluded that robust nonprofit arts scene has $100m impact on town's economy.
"Nonprofit organizations cannot, by definition, turn a profit. That doesn't mean they can't have an effect on the economy. Preliminary results from a new study by the Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation show a direct impact of more than $100 million from the region's arts and culture nonprofits alone." -- Ben Freed, MLive.com
