Mr. Bloomberg is a trustee of the Jewish Museum, the Spence School, the Big Apple Circus, Prep for Prep, the High School of Economics and Finance, the Institute for Advanced Study, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, the New York Police & Fire Widows' and Children's Benefit Fund, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the S.L.E. Foundation and the U.S. Ski Team Educational Foundation. He is a member of the board and co-chair of the individual gifts committee of the Central Park Conservancy.
