The Overton Park Shell

The Levitt Foundation exists to strengthen the social fabric of America.


We believe thriving public spaces are key to healthy communities. And we believe everyone should have access to free, high caliber entertainment.

That’s why we’re passionate supporters of creative placemaking that reimagines challenged public spaces—neglected parks, vacant downtown lots, former brownfields—into vibrant, music-filled community hubs.

We invest in community-driven efforts that harness the power of partnerships and leverage community support. Our primary funding areas include permanent Levitt venues and the Levitt AMP [Your City] Grant Awards. Both of these programs embody our funding philosophy and exemplify our core values.
