About the Trimberger Family Foundation
The Trimberger Family
Foundation is a nonprofit public benefit corporation organized exclusively
for charitable and educational purposes under Section 501 (c) (3) of the
Internal Revenue Code.
We live in a technological world. In
order for people to prosper in this world, they must understand the science
and technology that make it up. We promote that understanding in
children and adults worldwide through our support of schools and educational
institutions. Our technological appliances tend to orient people
toward sedentary pastimes. We support amateur athletics to encourage
people, especially children, toward a more healthful lifestyle.
