The Foundation supports organizations and initiatives that help young people from birth through age 26 realize their highest potential regardless of the challenges they face. Our primary interests include intellectual disabilities, learning disabilities, mental health, and substance use disorders, typically underfunded and stigmatized conditions.
The Tower Foundation supports work in Erie and Niagara Counties in Western New York, and in Barnstable, Dukes, Essex, and Nantucket Counties in Eastern Massachusetts.
The Tower Foundation provides traditional grants for programs and services, Strengthening Partner Capacity grants to help organizations build capacity, and Community Change grants (formerly Healthy Communities grants) that support communities working together to address issues collaboratively.
