Ex-Lincoln Center President to Join Robin Hood Foundation

New York anti-poverty charity the Robin Hood Foundation has named Reynold Levy, the former leader of Lincoln Center, as its new president, The New York Times reports.

Mr. Levy left Lincoln Center at the end of 2013. He was reckoned a master of "the ask" during his 11-year tenure as president of the arts venue, which he chronicled in a recent book.

"With 1.8 million of our neighbors living in poverty, we need his fundraising skills to help us help as many people as possible," said David Saltzman, executive director of the foundation, which makes grants to New York social-service groups and hosts the city's biggest annual charity gala.
