The Ellsworth Kelly Foundation upholds the philanthropic legacy of one of America’s preeminent artists through its ongoing support of causes Ellsworth Kelly (1923-2015) cared about deeply and supported generously during his lifetime: the arts, historic preservation, environmental conservation, and education. The Foundation supports several cultural preservation initiatives including the care, conservation, and exhibition of modern and contemporary artworks in museums in the U.S. and Europe and the restoration of world heritage sites in every corner of the globe. The Foundation is also proud to assist the efforts of local community groups working to conserve and protect the cultural, historic, civic, and natural resources of Columbia County, NY, where Ellsworth lived and worked for nearly 40 years and found its landscape a source of ongoing inspiration. Since its inception in 1991, the Ellsworth Kelly Foundation has donated over $30 million to support these causes. Grant awards by the Foundation are Board directed. The Foundation cannot accept unsolicited applications for support.
