About Us

The Urban Zen Foundation creates, connects and collaborates to raise awareness and inspire change in the areas of well-being, preserving cultures and empowering children. We design forums, partner with existing organizations and bring together experts to define solutions and implement action. Urban Zen was founded by designer Donna Karan over three years ago.

WELL-BEING

Our focus is to change the current healthcare paradigm to include integrative medicine and promote patient advocacy. We must treat the patient with the same passion we treat the disease by combining western science with nutrition, yoga and eastern healing practices.

EMPOWERING CHILDREN

Our mission is to care for our children’s well-being and give them the tools to face obstacles and opportunities with love, compassion & strength. We collaborate with existing children’s organizations and create programs to enhance their spiritual, physical and emotional growth.

PRESERVING CULTURES

Our goal is to help cultures maintain their natural essence and identity in the face of globalization. We connect with programs that help communities preserve their unique cultural and spiritual values. We celebrate their creativity and craft to allow their sustainability.
