WE ARE The Tommy Dowd Memorial Foundation
About Tommy Dowd
As a loving husband, adoring father, devoted son, cherished brother and good friend, Tommy Dowd was beloved by those who knew him. When his life was tragically torn away on 9/11, leaving his family, friends and community in deep grief, they vowed to continue his legacy of kindness, in memory of how he lived and what he meant to us all.
The TD Foundation works to support the local community by providing scholarships, unmet needs grants and operational support to individuals and community based organizations throughout Orange County. In order to further the legacy of Tommy Dowd the TD Foundation wants to provide support to individuals and families in need in a way that portrays compassion, kindness and respect which Tommy embodied. To realize those goals, the Board is developing new, year round fund raising activities. The Foundation is a Non-Profit 501 (c) (3) Organization.
The Board of Directors determines deserving male and female scholarship recipients based on information received from the applicants. The Board also seeks ways to address other local causes and issues, including the assistance of military families in need. To date, over $45,000 in Scholarships has been awarded to Monroe Woodbury High School students and additional sums have been donated to other worthy causes such as The Ed Wallace Fund, The Rich McKoy Foundation, MW Woodbury AAU Crusaders, The Special Children’s Fund and the Pat D’Aliso Foundation.
Here’s where we need your help. We thank you for your generosity over the past 12 years and are confident that you will continue to support the Foundation and the spirit it exemplifies. With your donation to the TD Foundation, you are helping young men and women of the community realize their college dreams and help us give back to other worthy causes. In addition, it is an opportunity for you to get additional exposure to your business thru the Internet and in the local newspapers. There is no donation too small. All checks should be made payable to the Tommy Dowd Memorial Foundation. Credit card donations can be made as well online at the following link: TD Foundation Online Donation or through our website www.tommydowd.org
This year, The TD Foundation will hold Two (2) Fund Raising Events. From July 17th thru July 20th, the 13th Annual Softball Tournament will be held at the Monroe-Woodbury High School and Chester’s Carpenter Field. There will be TD apparel, concessions and a party to be held afterwards. In the fall we will be holding our 5th Annual West Point bus trip to see Army Football.
To be included in our Corporate Sponsorship Program, a minimum donation $250 is required. There are 3 levels within the Corporate Sponsorship Program with additional benefits at every level. We can also tailor individual packages to businesses that are interested in being a title sponsor for any of the events or the foundation. Please see the Corporate Sponsorship Form or contact us for additional information.
