We catalyze nonprofit startups that are solving the toughest problems for local under-resourced youth and young adults.
TUGG supports early stage nonprofits in the New England region providing education, entrepreneurship, or life experiences to youth. We focus our funding towards organizations under $300k in annual operating budget that are less than five years old or that have had a major change recently (e.g. hired a new executive director). As a community of entrepreneurs, we find this stage in the evolution of a nonprofit to be incredibly exciting and believe it is where we can add the most value through our time and dollars. You can learn more about the nonprofits we have supported here.
