The Robertson Foundation is a private foundation established in 1996 by Tiger Management founder Julian H. Robertson, Jr., his wife Josie, and their family. With assets in excess of $1 billion and designated future gifts considerably higher, the foundation takes a targeted, businesslike, results-oriented approach to philanthropy.
The foundation makes large, transformative grants. Its objective is to leverage these grants by partnering with proven grantees and aligned funders. It seeks measurable outcomes in either the intermediate or longer term.
