The Dow Fund has been the leading organization in Boston and Massachusetts providing resources to the Asian American Community to ensure access to the legal system that is culturally and linguistically appropriate and relevant.
Over the past 30 years, the Dow Fund has launched numerous projects, including: Anti-Asian Violence Education Project, Asian Battered Women Project, Asian Immigrant Rights Initiative, Cambodian Outreach Project, Chinatown Stabilization Project, and Community Internship.
This year, we continue our longstanding support for Greater Boston Legal Services Asian Outreach Unit for its Vietnamese Outreach Advocate and Dow Community Interns projects. The Fund also expanded our reach into the Greater Worcester County Regional Area through funding provided to Community Legal Aid. We supported the inception of Community Legal Aid’s Asian Outreach and Advocacy Project. These programs and projects directly fund legal aid services to those most in need of legal advocacy and services. This year, with the collective generous support from organizations and individuals like you, the Dow Fund has been privileged to provide resources to these programs with grants totaling $80,000.
