We’ve Built A Foundation On Investing in Positive Outcomes
This summer, longtime grantee partner Friends of Karen teamed up with ONE15 Brooklyn Marina to provide sailing lessons for children facing life-threatening illnesses and their families.
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 juvenile and criminal justice, medicine, higher education and culture. Learn more about our vision.
