We make funding decisions based on careful review of an organization’s strategies and effectiveness, leadership and financial position. Our funding is intended to strengthen organizations, often through unrestricted support, and to improve their chances of making a measurable difference.
The Foundation’s grantmaking spans several areas of interest, clustered around the following categories:
- Advancing understanding of the biological basis of health and illness
- Ensuring a healthy democracy
- Expanding access to vital services and enrichment opportunities in Greater Boston
- Supporting the global Jewish community and Israel
As The Klarman Family Foundation is continually learning, our strategies within each of these areas will evolve; however, our dedication to applying best practices in philanthropy will remain unchanged.
