Who We Are


The Foundation was established in December 2013 by Kathryn B. McQuade, after retiring from 33 years of working in the business  community.   I was blessed to have been born into a loving middle class family.  My father worked very hard to insure that all of his children were given an opportunity for a good education and my mother, “a stay at home Mom’ was always there for us.  My world was safe and comfortable.  My life is in stark contrast to how much of the rest of the world lives.  I continue to read of the terrible injustices waged against women and children globally and hope that this foundation can provide them the opportunity and resources to succeed.   We will support organizations that help us achieve our goal of  Striving to make sustainable improvements in women and children’s rights education and welfare.
