Our Mission

The Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund is a New York City-based foundation that strives to improve access and opportunity for all New Yorkers. The Illumination Fund plays an engaged and active role in supporting organizations and leaders who have a positive impact and lasting effect on well-being and community life.

While the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund does not limit grant making to specific issues or organizations, it consistently champions innovative approaches to education, the arts, healthy food and service in order to illuminate strategies that transform our urban landscape.
