Charles H. Revson Foundation

Program support

The grant supports the 2nd, 3rd and 4th NYC Neighborhood Library Awards, which honor local libraries in New York City for providing exceptional service to their communities.

The Charles H. Revson Foundation, established in 1956, operates grant programs in Urban Affairs, Jewish Life, Biomedical Research, and Education. The Urban Affairs program focuses on projects that enhance New York City's vitality as a leading and livable urban capital; it continually seeks opportunities to strengthen the city's pluralistic communities and civic spaces, re-envisioning public libraries, affordable housing, and local public affairs journalism to cultivate knowledgeable, creative urban residents. The Jewish Life program operates in the United States, focusing on projects that reinterpret Jewish tradition for an ever-more-diverse community, and in lsrael, where the Foundation partners with lsraeli organizations to build a stronger, more inclusive society for young people.
