Sing for Hope transforms and uplifts individuals and communities in New York City by mobilizing artists in volunteer service programs, bringing the power of the arts to those who need it the most. Sing for Hope currently serves 5,000 youth and adults annually in our Healing Arts and Youth Arts programs, creating hope, joy, and determination in New York City's most vulnerable populations.


The Lulu & Leo Fund supports capacity building and systems development to grow the Sing for Hope Healing Arts Youth Arts , and Community Arts programs. 



The Museum of the City of New York celebrates and interprets the city, educating the public about its distinctive character, especially its heritage of diversity, opportunity, and perpetual transformation.


The Lulu & Leo Fund supports the Museum’s Family Programs, which enable family audiences, including those from at-risk communities and homeless shelters, to explore New York City’s multi-cultural history and to employ their creative energies in a welcoming learning environment.


Materials for the Arts (MFTA) collects surplus materials from businesses and individuals and redistributes them, free of charge, to nonprofits with ongoing arts programming and New York City public schools. In 2014, MFTA’s donation cycle diverted 1,220,000 pounds of material from the landfill. These quality goods were redistributed to 2,205 nonprofits and public schools across the five boroughs.


The Lulu & Leo Fund supports the Creative Reuse in the Classroom program at P.S. 5 in Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn. MFTA teaching artists and educators work directly with PS 5’s 3rd and 5th grade teachers to highlight the Common Core and Blueprint for the Arts standards by offering differentiated instruction through art projects that link to the curriculum and use recycled materials.
