The T.I.P.P.E.R. Foundation, Inc. is a nonprofit human services organization geared to providing supplemental financial relief and emotional support to a victim and their family as they recover from a traumatic injury. This temporary service will help to absorb the loss of income that occurs during a period of recovery. Read more about our mission.

The foundation is named after William “Tipper” Thomas.  Tipper survived a traumatic shooting at his high school in 2004 during his senior year.  Because of the support of his family he was able to recover, graduate high school on time, complete college at Morgan State University, and become an Electrical Engineer.  Learn more about Tipper.

Tipper is an inspirational speaker that travels the world speaking to various audiences about the importance of having dedicated care for the injured, advocating against violence, promoting STEM education, overcoming obstacles and life after a trauma. Book Tipper to speak at your next event.
