Eric Lefkofsky has spent numerous years focusing on charities. His most current endeavors are in the field of medicine. He founded Tempus because he believe effective medical care begins with data. Tempus provides data for oncologists including treatments and tumors. The company uses machine learning in the operating system to make information serviceable and accessible. This mean oncologists can identify the type of treatment best suited to different types of tumors leading to more individualized care for patients.
Eric Lefkofsky has also contributed to Rise of the Rest. Steve Case and J.D. Lance are the founders. The investors include Eric Schmidt and Jeff Bezos. The organization is concerned with the areas of the country without a well functioning technology sector. The organization believes the largest portion of seed money to establish new start ups goes directly to Silicon Valley. This leaves areas like the Rust Belt with potential and raw talent but few high tech startups. Rise of the Rest helps establish start ups in areas where technology sectors are lacking. This enables more people to be a part of American dream. When startups are located throughout the country, the expectations are the country will feel less divided politically, culturally and socially. This may make politicians more cooperative in solving problems and less partisan.
Eric Lefkofsky also serves numerous organizations within his hometown. This includes the Museum of Science and Industry, the Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago and World Business Chicago. In 2006, Eric Lefkofsky established the Lefkofsky Family Foundation. The main goal of the foundation is supporting other humanitarian groups in their work. They find organizations making a lasting and positive impact on the population and provide them with funding. This includes charter schools, theaters, community medical centers, political PACs, museums and so much more. The Lefkofsky Family Foundation focuses their finances on human rights, health, the fine arts, education and the performing arts.
