The Leatherman Tools Group launched on June 13 the Leatherman Grant Program, offering to donate $100,000 to support non-profit organizations around the world that “aim to inspire, prepare and develop the next generation of problem solvers,” to make the world a better place. The American company has launched the program because it took eight years of perseverance and problem-solving for its founder, Tim Leatherman, to make its mark 35 years ago with the world's first multi-tool. Applications for grants ranging from $5,000 to $15,000 will be accepted until Aug. 31. A team of Leatherman employees including Tim Leatherman himself will choose the 10 to 15 beneficiaries. The grantees will be announced in October.
