The Leadership Council

The Leadership Council is an important group of philanthropists who are deeply committed to Wave Hill’s mission to connect people to the natural world in meaningful and lasting ways. Through their critical support, Leadership Council Members ensure Wave Hill remains an exquisite work of art and its programs and educational offerings provide transformative experiences.  

The Leadership Council is also a chance to have fun! Members are invited to special, curated events that are quintessentially “Wave Hill.” These events are a great way to connect with Wave Hill, our staff and artists through special hands-on Master Classes and Salon Evenings and they are, by definition, intimate and unique.
