The six groups that are pooling this donation are the Carnegie Institution for Science, Harvard University, the São Paulo Research Foundation, the University of Arizona, the University of Chicago, and the University of Texas at Austin.
Joe and Clara Wu Tsai Foundation
$50 million to Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts to name the new theater that will house the New York Philharmonic and support a performance series that features a diverse representation of artists.
The grant for the Wu Tsai Theater was committed at the end of 2020, but only announced publicly this month.
