In 2017, Turtle Plastics Founder Tom Norton and his wife Dr. Karen Bradley established The Turtle Plastics Foundation, a broad-based nonprofit organization whose mission is to advocate, create, support, and promote educational, environmental, health, and safety initiatives worldwide. The Foundation accomplishes this mission through grants, donations, public awareness events, and other marketing efforts. Among their many activities, Tom and Karen have been instrumental in supporting community organizations that promote education and health for the people of Haiti.

The Foundation makes distributions to Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c) (3) organizations that support worthy nonprofit causes related to improving public health, education, safety, and the global environment.

The Foundation has been focused on helping to fund grants for fire training initiatives to volunteer fire departments. In addition, the Foundation has provided financial support to organizations such as the Flint Pal Corp to help establish a fresh water supply system for the local community center in Flint, Michigan, to the Renee Jones Empowerment Center in Cleveland, Ohio to help victims of human trafficking, and to local schools in Ohio to assist with STEM programs. The Foundation will be continuing its support to help with the the Flint water crisis and providing funds to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation as well as focusing on providing resources to communities hit with natural disasters in the form of relief aid funds and in supporting organizations who will be making positive social changes.
