Kathryn McQuade Foundation Grants
Too many children in the US and across the world live in poverty and lack the access to education.  Education and/or appropriate skills training are necessary to break the cycle of poverty and crime.  While the assistance to women may take many forms,  the foundation’s focus for children will target education and/ or skills training.   The Foundation is open to many ideas on how to accomplish this goal and look forward to receiving proposals to help all children achieve their potential.
