What We Do

The McGowan Fund is the living legacy of William G. McGowan, an entrepreneur and change-maker.

Our active, strategic grant-making focuses on three areas: Education, with an emphasis on improving academic achievement, high school graduation rates, and college success; Human Services, with an emphasis on homelessness; and Healthcare & Medical Research, with an eye to prevention of cardiac disease and reversal of metabolic syndrome through intensive lifestyle management. We also support access to healthcare.

The McGowan Fellows Program is steeped in ethics and leadership. We partner with leading academic institutions and community organizations to support tomorrow’s business leaders.
