Institutional Partnerships

We work with a number of foundations, corporations, and government agencies that share our belief in the power and importance of creativity.  Many of these partnerships serve to underwrite artist residencies, either with an endowed fund or annual gift.  Others provide assistance in the preservation of our extensive properties, designated a National Historic Landmark in 2013.

Foundation and corporate relationships have reflected such shared areas of interest as artists’ country of origin, artistic disciplines, or areas of individual focus, such as science, education and the law.

If you wish to make a gift from a foundation or a corporation, please contact Lisa Dierbeck, Director of Development, by email,, or phone, (212) 307-7685.

We gratefully acknowledge our lead corporate and foundation partners.
