RATHMANN FAMILY FOUNDATION
The Rathmann Family Foundation seeks to leverage the talents, experience, and passion of its members and the communities in which they live by funding those displaying the desire, skill, and energy to make a difference in the world around them.
Since inception, the Foundation has had the great privilege of providing grants to several hundred qualified organizations with programs in the United States and on occasion in other parts of the world. The Foundation regrets it does not have the resources to fund all such qualified organizations. Except for funding opportunities offered through the Rathmann Innovation Center, including the Rathmann Challenge, the Foundation does not accept unsolicited funding inquiries or proposals.
“The National Science and Technology Medals Foundation is a convener and catalyst for the science and technology communities by creating opportunities for education and inspiration.”
