Donor Briefings at The Trust

Developers working with our grantee, ArtSpace, are building affordable housing and studios for artists, their families, and the vibrant community of East Harlem. Instead of starting from scratch, P.S. 109 on East 99th Street is being renovated to house this community project. They couldn’t have picked a better building with copper-clad cupolas peeking over the Manhattan skyline.

At a briefing held at The Trust this week, Kelley Lindquist of ArtSpace told donors how public and private funds, in addition to historic preservation tax credits, help their organization convert empty buildings across the country into lofts and apartments for artists.

If you missed the briefing, don’t worry. There will be more dedicated to the de Blasio administration’s agenda for social services, reducing crime through community policing; early literacy projects in our Brooke Astor Fund; and more.
