    Tinker Foundation Incorporated


      Acronym: TFI
      Geographic Scope: International
      Status: Active
      Year Established: 1959

    The mission of the Tinker Foundation

    is to promote the development of an equitable, sustainable

    and productive society in Latin America

    and to enhance understanding in the U.S. of Latin America

    and how U.S. policies may impact the region.


    The Tinker Foundation was created by Edward Larocque Tinker (1881-1968) in 1959 in memory of his wife Frances McKee Tinker, his father Henry Champlin Tinker, and his grandfather Edward Greenfield Tinker. He was convinced that the future freedom and prosperity of the peoples of the Americas depended upon their mutual trust, friendship and cooperation and it was in that spirit that the Foundation was established.
