In 2016, the Center began a five-year fundraising campaign called The Next Step: Initiatives for the Future. The campaign encourages you to make a five-year pledge, which helps the Center plan its finances. Or you can choose to make an annual contribution. Your ongoing generosity is important and makes possible the continued development of theory and engagement for students of Bowen theory around the world. The Next Step follows our successful Campaign for the Future. Your contributions there helped us add the technology we now use for webcast training and programming and also provided for the renovation of the classroom and other necessary improvements to our condominium office space.

The Bowen Center depends on your dedication to Bowen theory to continue this work. Please read the initiatives on the right and decide which captures your imagination. Your dedication and contribution is greatly appreciated.

Four Ways to Give

Your Donation Supports the Following Initiatives:

Scholarships to Training Programs

Training programs in Bowen theory encourage the development of clinical work and leadership in Bowen theory. Your contribution helps make training available to promising young professionals who could not otherwise participate.

Spanish Speaking Outreach

To make Bowen theory more available to Spanish speakers for learning, research, and application, the Center has developed a Spanish language website, published Spanish editions of our books, and begun a Spanish study group. Further academic outreach is planned.

Family Systems Journal

Online digital availability, academic indexing, and the publication of the compilation, From the Editor, allow the journal, now in its third decade, to broaden readership and continue exploration of Bowen theory’s applications to research, science, and clinical practice.

Sliding Scale Clinic

The Bowen Center offers members of the community affordable clinical services. Interns and Bowen Center clinicians utilize clinical work to share and expand their own thinking and research.

Website & Social Media Outreach

Webcast training and seminars allow the Center to introduce theory and foster professional growth regardless of location. Students of our Introduction to Bowen Theory class and subscribers to Conversations with the Faculty participate from the US and other countries.
