Nonprofit organizations representing our country’s most vulnerable persons, defending their rights, and championing their causes very often lack the necessary funds to pursue even the most egregious cases.

Each year, the Foundation receives many more grant requests than it can fulfill. With today’s legal, political and economic climate, there is a significant and growing need for grantmaking to support social justice litigation.

As one of the few nationwide sources for grants for social justice litigation, the Foundation is raising additional funds to allow it to donate more money to more grantees, creating even greater impact on social justice reform.

Your donation to the Barbara McDowell Foundation demonstrates your commitment to furthering social justice.

For more information, see the Donor Information Guide and Case for Support, below.

Donations by check can be made payable and sent to:
The McDowell Foundation
3607 Whispering Lane
Falls Church, VA 22041.

Alternatively, donations by credit card or bank transfer can be made securely online though PayPal by clicking the Donate button at the top right.

All donations are fully tax deductible as the Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
