The Diller – von Furstenberg Family Foundation has made a $20 million commitment to the High Line, which is the largest single private contribution to a public park in New York City’s history. This unprecedented pledge, made by Barry Diller and Diane von Furstenberg, will support our fundraising efforts to transform the final, undeveloped section of the High Line at the West Side Rail Yards and help build an endowment for the park’s long-term maintenance and operations.
In 2005, when the High Line was a beautiful design on paper, many people said it was an impossible dream. Barry, Diane, and their family stepped forward at that crucial moment with visionary support that helped catalyze the construction of the first section of the High Line. Later, during the turmoil of the financial crisis in 2008 and 2009, they stepped forward again to make sure that the second section of the High Line could be built to the same standards of design and to begin an endowment for the park’s long-term operations. Now, understanding the importance of our mission to secure the entire historic High Line at the West Side Rail Yards, and to build our endowment, they have come forward once again to meet the High Line’s most pressing needs.With this pledge, the Diller – von Furstenberg family has donated a total of $35 million to the High Line, demonstrating their leadership in preserving and transforming the High Line into a public park to be enjoyed by New Yorkers for generations to come.
The Diller – von Furstenberg Family Foundation is a private family foundation which provides philanthropic support to various 501(c)3 non-profit organizations. Founded in 1999, the Foundation is guided by the shared values, concerns and passions of the Diller – von Furstenberg family. As its central goal, the Foundation aims to positively impact the world by improving people’s lives and strengthening communities. To achieve this objective, the Foundation supports organizations which either provide people opportunities for which they would not otherwise have access, or which sustainably improve a community as a whole. The primary recipients of the Foundation’s support are organizations within the following sectors: Community Building, Education, Human Rights, Arts, Health and the Environment.
