TAG Remembers Paul Newman

Winter 2008/2009

When Paul Newman died on September 26, 2008, the world lost an extraordinary man -- one of the most talented actors of his generation, a sportsman, an entrepreneur, and a philanthropist. TAG joins those mourning the loss of a man whose film work touched and inspired millions of people, and whose philanthropy helped millions more. TAG was just one of hundreds of nonprofit organizations to benefit from the philanthropy of his Newman's Own brand of foods. TAG's first donations from Paul Newman came in 1999 and to date we have received over $475,000 from Newman's Own and the Paul Newman Foundation. We send our condolences to his wife of fifty years, Joanne Woodward, his five children, two grandsons, his older brother, and to all his colleagues, friends, and family.
