Following the tragic deaths of Galen and Barbara Rowell in August 2002, ICT’s Board of Directors and close friends and family of the Rowells established a fund to carry on Galen and Barbara Rowell’s legacy in the Tibetan community.
Galen Rowell was the Co-chair of ICT’s Board of Advisors and a longtime friend of Tibet. Together, Galen and Barbara produced the book My Tibet, with His Holiness the Dalai Lama, and introduced Tibet to countless people around the world. Through photographs and writing they documented and brought attention to many threatened ecosystems and cultures.
The Rowell Fund for Tibet gives small grants to Tibetans who are working to promote their culture and environment in the arenas of environmental conservation, photography, humanitarian issues, journalism/literature, and women’s projects. The Fund is managed by the International Campaign for Tibet. Tibetans from any country are eligible to apply. Click here for details on how to apply for a grant.
All donations to the Rowell Fund are fully tax-deductible.
