Klarman Family Foundation

Organization Overview


The Klarman Family Foundation seeks to identify areas of unmet need and to advance solutions to addressing them.  We believe passionately in the promise and importance of creative thinking, strategic leadership and strong organizations to help bring about change.  Our intention as a Foundation is to help make measurable progress in improving the lives of others.  We invest in research efforts to advance understanding of the biological basis of health and illness. The Foundation’s research grants are currently focused on three efforts: the Anorexia Nervosa Genetics Initiative (ANGI), the Klarman Cell Observatory at the Broad Institute, and the Eating Disorders Research Grants Program.  As we are continually learning, our specific areas of focus will evolve. Our dedication to applying best practices in philanthropy will remain unchanged.
