The purpose of The Hartwell Foundation is to inspire
innovation and achievement in all programs we support.
Philanthropy is a serious responsibility. Our approach
is to be unique, selective, and thorough. We insist that
recipients utilize funds efficiently and responsibly. We
provide an opportunity for those we support to make a
difference and to realize their hopes and dreams.
The Primary Mission of The Hartwell Foundation is to
grant awards to individuals for innovative and
cutting-edge biomedical applied research that
will potentially benefit children. The individuals and
children should be citizens of the United States. The
general aim is to provide funds for early stage research
projects that have not yet qualified for funding from
traditional sources. The Primary Mission of the
Foundation is led by the President.
Additional Missions include special projects that will directly benefit the health and well-being of children of the United States. The Additional Missions are led by the Chief Executive Officer of the Foundation. All of the Missions of the Foundation are of equal importance.
