The Tarlton Foundation is a non-profit organization focused on cancer research and educational initiatives.

In the five years since its inception, the Tarlton Foundation has raised, donated, and pledged over $800,000 to benefit cancer research and local organizations, touching tens of thousands of lives through participation in scholarship programs, blood drives, food drives, toy drives, and community events.
