Our Mission

We strive to improve access and opportunity for all New Yorkers

The Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund strives to increase access and opportunity for all New Yorkers and foster healthy and vibrant communities. The fund uses an equity lens to develop initiatives and to issue grants, driven by the principle that everyone should have access to positive and enriching opportunities that define a full range of human experience and that circumstances of birth should not limit choices or short circuit success for anyone.
