John Templeton Foundation

The John Templeton Foundation was established in 1987 by Sir John Templeton.

The foundaiton serves as a philanthropic catalyst for discoveries relating to Big Questions of human purpose and ultimate reality. They support research on subjects ranging from complexity, evolution, and infinity to creativity, forgiveness, love, and free will.

The vision of the foundaiton is derived from Sir John Templeton's optimism about the possibility of acquiring new spiritual information and from his commitment to rigorous scientific research and related scholarship.
