Welcome

The Harman Family Foundation funds programs in Washington, DC that work at the intersection of arts and youth development, that improve and enrich educational  opportunities for middle to high school students, and that make post-secondary success possible for underserved youth in low-income communities.  The Foundation also supports capacity building for community-based nonprofits, and the promotion of philanthropy, through its founding and development of the Catalogue for Philanthropy: Greater Washington. Grants in Boston and Los Angeles are primarily focused on youth development through the arts. In New York City, we prioritize capacity building, direct service, and advocacy initiatives by education and arts organizations working with marginalized, low-income youth in middle and high school. In 2018 the Foundation began accepting proposals from organizations working on post-secondary success, including job readiness, workforce training, and college access for young adults up to age 25.
