Juan Pablo Duarte Foundation

Addressing cultural, civic and academic needs of the largely low-income, Northern Manhattan immigrant community of Washington Heights/Inwood.

The Juan Pablo Duarte (JPD) Foundation's mission is to be the conduit for opportunities in the cultural, arts, and educational arenas that celebrate the enduring legacy of Dominican heritage. 

 JPD Foundation helps make it possible for formal and informal groups to fulfill their missions and for students and artists to live up to their potential to benefit the Northern Manhattan community and society at large.

Our new 1,515 square-foot Community Space (capacity of 160 people) at the George Washington Bridge Port Authority Terminal will serve the  communities of Washington Heights/Inwood by providing critically-needed free or affordable space for a range of youth-focused, cultural, and civic activities and gatherings. Event and activity space of all kinds is in extremely short supply; this has been exacerbated by gentrification of parts of the Heights/Inwood and associated the rising rents and increased stress on spaces currently available for non-profit and informal community use.
