The Foundation exists to promote Social Justice, Environmental Justice, and Education. It was started in 2003 by Dianne Shumaker and the late Paul Shumaker, one of the founding engineers at Garmin International.
We take an active interest in the work of all our grantees. We also try to serve as a resource for our grantee organizations and their staffs by introducing them to other grantees with related projects and/or others in the community with the same or similar goals. All of our grantees are invited to utilize us in this way.
At the Shumaker Family Foundation, we appreciate the wonderful work being done in our community, and throughout the country, by dedicated and hard-working nonprofit professionals who make the world a better place. We hope our online process is helpful, rather than burdensome. Please let us know if there is something we can do to make it better for applicants and grantees, as we want to support you in the work you are doing! Thank you.
