Who We Are


Through education, the Turnbow Foundation offers disadvantaged children and their families the opportunity to become financially self sufficient for future generations.

History of the Foundation

The Turnbow Foundation was founded in 2003 by Judith (Turnbow) Reinartz with the dream to better the lives of children. Throughout Judy’s life she volunteered her support to local community issues, especially ones that involved children and single mothers.

Judy retired in 2002 from the Bank of Santa Clara and wanted to keep giving to her community and dedicated herself to charitable work. She decided to establish the Turnbow Foundation, which would allow her to continue helping others. Sadly, Judy passed away from cancer in 2003. Her son, Thomas Bambury, and daughter, Marilyn Joyce are working to continue Judy’s vision of assisting those less fortunate.

The Turnbow Foundation hopes to make a difference one life at a time, the way Judy touched so many lives individually during her lifetime.
