Tomberg Family Philanthropies
The mission of the Tomberg Family Philanthropies is to support well run and effective programs that make a difference in the areas of poverty alleviation, the environment, health, and education. The focus is on supporting projects that help their recipients build capabilities themselves that will last far beyond the end of the specific project.
The Foundation makes grants to organizations working in the areas of education, the environment, health, and poverty alleviation. The Philanthropies seeks to fund individual projects, such as pilot programs, support of new programs, capacity building, evaluations, etc. that allow it to make a larger difference with limited funds than would be possible otherwise.
Amount: Grants typically range from $5,000-$15,000 and range up to three years.
Eligibility: Tax-exempt, nonprofit organizations and certain government entities or public institutions in the United States such as public schools and universities. Giving is on a national basis.
