Protecting and expanding opportunity for all


About Us

At The Tepper Foundation, we support organizations working on the frontlines to expand opportunity — from promoting food and housing security to protecting fundamental rights. By working hand-in-hand with our grantee partners, we identify needs in communities and strive to meet them. We are also responsive to moments of great need; quickly deploying resources in the wake of unforeseen crises and natural disasters through our nimble approach to giving.
