  • 2017 Grant Application is Open! (1)


    The Bowen Foundation for Autism is a nonprofit organization that seeks to improve the lives of children with autism in Maryland. Our goal is pretty simple: we award grants to local families who are struggling to pay for needed services to benefit children with autism.

    Applicants are encouraged to apply for Bowen Foundation grant funding for any service they deem an immediate and important need for children and families with autism.

Thank You for Making the Holidays Bright!

Many of the families we support have to choose between purchasing vital medications, meals and keeping their homes heated. On their wish lists are items like socks, underwear and winter coats. Holiday gifts for their children are out of the question.

Every year, The Arc seeks to brighten the season by providing holiday gifts for children with disabilities and their siblings. Thanks to our wonderful community partners we were once again able to brighten the holidays for these families. A special thank you to The Bowen Foundation, Benkovich Orthodontics,  Iliff, Meredith Wildberger & Brennan, Liff & Walsh, Creative Force Dance Center, LeCompte Construction, and the Department of Housing and Community Development - CDA Finance for their part in bringing smiles to the children's faces.
