Community and the Arts
The Dalio family feels a strong connection to its community and wants to support it in a number of ways.
Numerous studies have shown that there is a strong correlation between ones happiness and health and the quality of one’s community connections. The Dalio family and Foundation have supported a number of community organizations, including the Bruce Museum, Byram Park, Just Give, Boy Scouts of America, and Prospector Foundation. In addition, music’s connection to community is an important aspect of this initiative, and organizations supported include Greenwich Town Party, the Ellis Marsalis Center for Music, the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz, and Jazz at Lincoln Center.
Total support from the foundation and family for community and arts organizations to date exceeds $149 million.
