Given the swiftly evolving spread of COVID-19, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund has made the difficult decision to close our offices, including The Pocantico Center, beginning Wednesday, March 11, until further notice.

The Pocantico Center hosts conferences and meetings, artists residencies and performances, and public and community programs that support the Fund’s philanthropic activities. It also offers public access through forums, lectures, and educational programs focused on the Pocantico Historic Area’s buildings, gardens, and collections of decorative and fine art. Public tours of Kykuit are offered from May through mid-November each year, drawing 32,954 visitors in 2018.
