Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation

Founded in 1998, the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation is dedicated to the long-term health and wellbeing of all Earth’s inhabitants. Through collaborative partnerships we support innovative projects that build climate resiliency, protect vulnerable wildlife from extinction, and restore balance to threatened ecosystems and communities.

LDF is currently underway supporting and funding more than 112 cutting-edge projects that directly address our climate crisis while protecting threatened ecosystems, endangered wildlife and indigenous communities in 48 countries and all 5 oceans.

Significant progress has been made in just the past year. The Foundation expanded our efforts to protect ocean ecosystems from destructive, rampant overfishing, to defend enormous swaths of rainforest against logging, to protect gorillas, elephants and black rhinos in Africa, to empower local indigenous tribes in the Amazon to protect their lands and rights, and to save wild tigers and snow leopards in Asia. Working hand in hand with our partners, local communities and leaders around the globe, we are making a difference.

We are extremely proud of all that we have achieved, but the threat facing our planet remains enormous – and time is quickly running out. The next several years are critical. We can move our planet in the right direction, but there is a lot of work to be done.

Charitable auctions like this one help us generate the funds necessary to empower our partners on the ground around the world. We are excited to share this amazing collection of artwork, unique items, and incredible experiences that have been so generously donated to our effort this year. All the funds raised through this effort will help us turn the tide in the battle to protect our beautiful planet.

The Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation is a component fund of California Community Foundation, a registered 501 (c)(3) US organization. Gifts may be eligible for a tax deduction, please consult your tax advisor.

Thank you.

13 JUNE, 2016 (BASEL, SWITZERLAND)

UNAIDS is celebrating its 20th anniversary and is pleased to welcome you to its second annual “Where History is Made” Gala to benefit UNAIDS.

Thank you for joining us this evening to support UNAIDS work in significantly increasing access to HIV prevention and treatment services for women and children worldwide and to pay tribute to our distinguished honoree, former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan. We are proud and delighted to be able to honor him for his exceptional contribution to the global AIDS response.

Every four minutes, a child is infected with HIV. Without HIV treatment, half of all children living with HIV will die by the age of two and most will die before their fifth birthday. It is possible to prevent the deaths of children and mothers.

UNAIDS and partners recently launched Start Free Stay Free AIDS Free: Ending New Infections in Children, Adolescents and Young Women. This initiative aims at ending paediatric AIDS by making sure that we halt new infections in children, find children who have been missed and ensure they have access to lifesaving treatment, and prevent new infections in girls and young women.

You can make history by helping us to eliminate mother-to-child transmission of HIV and prevent thousands of deaths by supporting UNAIDS and our partners. With your help, we will soon be able to ensure that all children, everywhere, are born free from HIV.

Thank you so much and enjoy an inspiring evening to benefit children and families living with and affected by HIV.

UNAIDS Executive Director

UNAIDS Gala 2016

The Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) leads and inspires the world to achieve its shared vision of zero new HIV infections, zero discrimination and zero AIDS-related deaths. UNAIDS unites the efforts of 11 UN organizations—UNHCR, UNICEF, WFP, UNDP, UNFPA, UNODC, UN Women, ILO, UNESCO, WHO and the World Bank—and works closely with global and national partners towards ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030 as part of the Sustainable Development Goals.

Foundation Fighting Blindness
12 APRIL, 2016 (NEW YORK)

Simon de Pury

When Inga Rubenstein asked me to lend my services to help raise funds for the Foundation Fighting Blindness I did not hesitate one second. As someone devoting his life to visual arts I can not even begin to imagine what a life deprived of the capacity of seeing would be like. Her efforts such as the generous donations by Marc Quinn, Antony Gormley, Sante D'Orazio and Roy Nachum will clearly make a difference.

The Foundation Fighting Blindness was established in 1971 by a passionate group of individuals driven to overcome blinding eye diseases that were affecting themselves or loved ones. At the time, very little was known about these devastating retinal diseases that lead to blindness.

The Foundation’s goal was clear: To drive the research that would lead to preventions, treatments and vision restoration for retinal diseases – including macular degeneration, retinitis pigmentosa, and Usher syndrome – that together affect more than 10 million Americans and millions more throughout the world.

Today, the Foundation is a thriving national nonprofit and the world’s leading private source for inherited retinal disease research funding. FFB is committed to driving research until the entire spectrum of retinal degenerative diseases is eradicated.

MTV RE:DEFINE
8 APRIL, 2016 (DALLAS, TEXAS)

Simon de Pury

MTV conjures up fond memories for me going right back to its start. I was instantly addicted to it and glued to the screen 24/7. 'I want my MTV', the term coined by Dire Straits in their famous song 'Money for Nothing', spoke for a whole generation. Fast forward, and MTV today is a major media empire. It is laudable and exemplary to see how they use the fruits of their incredible success for an amazing philanthropic commitment. Georgia Arnold is the brilliant person who continues to untiringly spearhead these efforts.

George Michael is an artist whose immense talent has and continues to bring joy to millions around the world. Together with Kenny Goss they share their passion for art and their own formidable engagement to make this world a better place.

A number of artists have joined forces with MTV, the Goss-Michael Foundation and Dallas Contemporary to raise funds for HIV prevention and awareness, and the local arts community.

I am delighted to be conducting the live auction on 8th April. Amongst the many works that have been donated I have made a selection of ten works that I would like to highlight in particular which you can find on the de PURY website, the Paddle8 website, and marked in the gallery.

MTV RE:DEFINE returns for its fifth edition with the most impressive line-up of works to date. This dynamic auction, featuring work by Marc Quinn, Sterling Ruby, Enoc Perez, Dan Colen and many more is curated by Neville Wakefield.

Proceeds benefit the MTV Staying Alive Foundation and Dallas Contemporary.

In June 1990 Thomas Ammann, Elizabeth Taylor and Audrey Hepburn organized a big amfAR gala at the Kunstmuseum Basel.
