Overview:

The Lindberg Foundation Trust was created in 1954 by W. H. Lindberg and Isabel P. Lindberg to support a variety of charitable causes. Mr. and Mrs. Lindberg were residents of Pierce County, Washington.

They were community philanthropists, supporting charitable organizations such as the Humane Society for Tacoma and Pierce County, the Tacoma Community Chest (now the United Way of Pierce County), and the Tacoma Art Museum. More than forty paintings and drawings from the estate of Mr. and Mrs. Lindberg were bequeathed to the Tacoma Art Museum in 1983. The Lindberg Collection is comprised primarily of French and German paintings from the second half of the nineteenth century, and includes works by such notable artists as Boudin, Degas, Fantin-Latour, Pissarro, Renoir, Schreyer, and Spitzweg.

Mr. Lindberg died in 1971, and Mrs. Lindberg died in 1982.
