The Tow Foundation envisions a society where all people have the opportunity to enjoy a high quality of life and have a voice in their community. We strive for this by supporting and influencing nonprofit organizations and the systems that affect them to help vulnerable populations and individuals to become positive contributors to society for the benefit of themselves and others.
We pursue our vision by funding projects and creating collaborative ventures in fields where we see opportunities for breakthroughs, reform and benefits for underserved populations. 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.
The foundation is currently committed to supporting programs and services in the state of Connecticut that are designed to improve outcomes for vulnerable children and families, and to advance public policy reform in the areas of juvenile justice, youth development, child welfare, and education.
The foundation’s interests include breakthrough medical research in the areas of neuro-muscular diseases and cancer, humanism in medicine, cultural institutions, and higher education. These projects are funded by invitation only.
