Kumo understands that even the best foundations with worthy causes are in need of unwavering support. We’re committed to helping them worry a little less about funding so that they can continue focusing on having a profound impact on communities and special individuals. We pledge that as Kumo grows, our financial contributions to help fund philanthropic missions will grow with us. While we’re especially strong advocates for charities that help children with disabilities and illnesses, we’re also extremely proud to support organizations that work in other sectors as well.
