about the Shelley and Donald Rubin Foundation

The Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation supports the performance of policy analysis, research, educational and artistic activities related to two important aspects of our society: the changing family structure and our cultural and ethnic diversity.

A non-profit, tax-exempt, 501(c)(3) organization incorporated in 1991, the Foundation has a special interest in preserving Tibetan religious art. The Foundation's most active program, the Himalayan Art Project, maintains an extensive collection of Tibetan thangkas and supports the production and dissemination of a wide range of educational and art-related material. The project provides grants to individuals, museums and monasteries in the United States and other nations, is supporting the publication of a book presenting a portion of its art collection, and is building a virtual museum at the Foundation's website, www.tibetart.com.
