We’ve Built A Foundation On Investing in Positive Outcomes




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.


In its commitment to the well-being of our staff, grantee partners and the broader community, The Tow Foundation has made the difficult decision to close its physical offices, beginning Thursday, March 12, until further notice. The Foundation staff will be working remotely and our operations will be largely uninterrupted.

We must break away from the concept that only government has the power and resources to change lives. Individuals and small organizations make big things happen.
