James Bower Foundation

The James S. Bower Foundation provides support for the positive social and cultural evolution of our world. The Foundation helps to create a better future by making grants to partners who share the belief that a healthier world can be fostered through compassionate action and social change.

We believe that philanthropy can play an important role in understanding and influencing societal change processes that will lead to positive results. We are committed to strategic, purpose-driven and outcome-oriented grantmaking and are interested in how we, as individuals and members of diverse cultural, religious, economic and political groups, can find commonality and further changes in:

  • Educational, developmental and health processes for infants, children, and youth,
  • Educational, developmental and health processes for seniors,
  • Environmental conditions,
  • Human consciousness and social awareness.

The Foundation’s giving is focused in Santa Barbara, California.

I have learned that the meaning of extraordinary kindness at Sarah House is something that we should all incorporate into our lives, in all our interactions with others. I saw the unconditional love and acceptance open the heart of my brother in his last days and touch the hearts and minds of all his friends who witnessed the many acts of love he received. Thank you for giving my brother so much, as he had so little.
