Purpose and Activities

Giving primarily to organizations which provide educational opportunities to underprivileged children, and to organizations which engage in research and care with respect to AIDS and HIV infection. The foundation also maintains a collection of art along with archives which facilitate historical research about Keith Haring and the times and places in which he lived and worked. The foundation supports arts and educational institutions by funding exhibitions, educational programs, acquisitions and publications that serve to contextualize and illuminate the artist’s work and philosophy.


Established in 1989 in NY - Founded by the late Keith Haring, who was an artist and social activist. He achieved his first public attention with chalk drawings in the subways of New York. Haring's "The Radiant Baby," with its bold lines, vivid colors, and active figures, became his symbol. During a career that spanned the 1980s, Haring’s work was featured in over 100 solo and group exhibitions. By expressing universal concepts of birth, death, love, sex and war, Haring's imagery has become a widely recognized visual language of the 20th century.
