Todd G. Black

THOUGHTFUL. SELFLESS. GENEROUS. FUN. DEVOTED. LEADER.

These describe the essence of the man upon which this organization was founded.

The Together Giving Back [TGB] Foundation is an impact-driven nonprofit created in honor of Optomi, llc Cofounder, Todd G. Black. Todd championed strong values, generosity, warm-hearted corporate culture and he relished any opportunity to make a positive impact in people’s lives. His giving spirit, genuine heart for those in need and passion for doing the right thing made him a remarkable leader, friend, husband, father and neighbor. Fueled by these philosophies, The TGB Foundation carries on his legacy by providing opportunity for kids to live their best lives.

Our efforts are restoring hope, inspiring courage, defying anxiety and filling hungry little bellies.  Through the work of this 501(c)(3), we embolden hospitalized patients through the gift of TGBash Bags of entertainment & fun gallant hospital gowns, support children suffering from hunger in America and come to the aid of children disproportionately affected by crisis in the aftermath of chaos created by natural disasters.

Directed by those closest to Todd’s heart, our collective passion is transforming little lives and enabling communities to thrive.
