We’ve Built A Foundation On Investing in Positive Outcomes
The Tow Foundation has committed $2 million to support multiple myeloma research at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of Miami. The work will be led by Dr. C. Ola Landgren (pictured left) and will focus on studying early detection and predisposition for multiple myeloma, a form of blood cancer.
The Tow Foundation stands in solidarity with the Black community and its allies to dismantle the systems that have contributed to the racial injustice and deep, violent oppression in our country. We encourage our peers in philanthropy to do the same, using both their words and actions. Staying silent is not an option. The Tow Foundation is committed to highlighting the work of our grantee partners in support of a more safe, just and equitable society for all. Please tune in to their social media channels to learn more.
We feel it is our obligation to help others achieve success in their own lives, to alleviate pain and suffering, and to offer opportunities for joy. We hope to provide leverage and make possible far greater things than we could achieve alone.
Our investments focus on the support of innovative programs and system reform in the fields of youth and adult criminal justice, medicine and public health, higher education, journalism and culture. Learn more about our vision.
