Honoring the past. Funding a brighter future.
Weaving together a diverse tapestry of giving that encompasses history, the environment, cultural institutions, and health and human rights, the TAWANI Foundation strongly reflects the interests and outlook of its founder, COL (IL) Jennifer N. Pritzker, IL ARNG (Retired), whose children, Tal, Andrew, and William, inspired the Foundation’s name.
Springing from an individual vision, the TAWANI Foundation’s grantmaking is aimed at making a broader world of good, one that combines a deep respect for how far we’ve come with a steadfast optimism for how far we can go.
“Determine that the thing can and shall be done, and then we shall find the way.”
– Abraham Lincoln
