The Harman Family Foundation funds programs that work at the intersection of arts and youth development, and that enrich the educational opportunities of middle and high school-age students and disconnected youth in Washington D.C., and also in Boston and Los Angeles. In  New York City, it has both a population focus—prioritizing services for refugees and immigrant youth and their families—and a mandate to support sexual and reproductive health services (SRH) and capacity building in education. Internationally the focus is human rights and gender equity work in developing nations. 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.
