$5 Million Major Initiative: Our Partner Grantees

In 2014 the Harkness Foundation made a commitment of $1 million each to five major organizations of prominent importance to the dance field in New York City, as well as nationally and internationally:

  • The Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM)
  • The Joyce Theater
  • New York City Center
  • The 92nd Street Y/Harkness Dance Center
  • NYU Langone Medical Center/Hospital for Joint Diseases, home of the Harkness Center for Dance Injuries

We are confident that this significant support, to be distributed over the ensuing decade, will benefit every sector of the dance community. Read more about this initiative >
