The Jarvis & Constance Doctorow Family Foundation was established in New York City in 2004, as a tax-exempt 501(c) 3 charitable trust with personal donations by its first Trustees, Jarvis and Constance Doctorow.  


Our Mission
Nurturing individuals and communities through the arts and mental health

Funding Philosophy
JCDFF funds projects that focus on the provision of mental health services and organizations focused on performance, literary or visual arts. The Foundation also supports educational activities related to the areas mentioned above. JCDFF funds organizations that maintain a standard of excellence in every endeavor.

We support entities that have been in existence as 501(c)3 organizations for at least 5 years, and have other established sources of funding.

A JCDFF grant is by invitation only and we do not accept LOIs or unsolicited applications.
