About the Foundation

For 30 years, we’ve been funding the future. A better future.

The Brockman Foundation has supported worthy initiatives in the areas of education and medical research for more than three decades. We believe that we can help to create a better world by supporting the people who are most likely to improve it. We do so by supporting high-potential individuals through our education program, and by providing funding to people with breakthrough ideas through our medical research grant program.

The philanthropic activities of the Brockman Foundation are effected by distributions from a trust established by A. Eugene Brockman. The late Mr. Brockman, a businessman and philanthropist, believed strongly that gifted individuals could help to create a better world for us all. His vision is at the core of what the Foundation believes in, and supports.
