In Australia, the United States and around the globe, we seek to invest in individuals and organizations who dare to imagine constructive, sustainable products, services and processes that positively impact our planet and its inhabitants: innovative, systems-changing initiatives.
The Tingari-Silverton Foundation (TSF) is an international foundation committed to honoring, nurturing and supporting innovators, entrepreneurs and organizations whose products, services or processes make the world a better place. Especially for peoples and communities who find themselves in arduous predicaments because of geopolitical, psychosocial, economic or climate challenges. We aim to contribute to potentially amplifying, systemic, ecosystem-wide positive impacts.
In Central Texas and South Australia: Please review our Partnering Ethos and grant and impact investing guidelines. If your organization clearly fits, you may submit a proposal (no more than 8 pages, including financials) on your project, via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We do not have application forms or deadlines. Submissions are accepted year-round and are reviewed on an ongoing basis, with grant decisions generally made in late spring and late fall of each year.
We do not have application forms or deadlines governing the submission or review of proposals. Proposals are accepted year round and are reviewed on an ongoing basis. Our board of directors meets periodically throughout the year to review appropriate proposals. If your proposal is approved for funding, you will be notified after the board meeting at which the proposal was considered.
Unfortunately, because of our small size and strict focus, there are many worthy organizations and projects – including projects that meet our program investment criteria – that we simply cannot fund. We appreciate your understanding. The Tingari-Silverton Foundation is a private family foundation with deep roots in both the United States and Australia. The founding family maintains residences in central Texas and in the state of South Australia, and as a result focuses its resources primarily, but not exclusively, in these locations.
