Donate to the MaryLee Allen Fund for Child Advocacy
On June 13, 2019, the Children’s Defense Fund lost a beloved friend and a lifelong advocate for children, our Director of Policy, MaryLee Allen. For more than 40 years, MaryLee helped shape our advocacy for children and was integral to countless policy achievements that have made America a better place to be a child.
MaryLee never wavered in her dedication and commitment to improving the lives of children. Thank you for donating to help ensure the continuation of the critical work to which MaryLee devoted her life.
If you are interested in making a larger gift in memory of MaryLee that would be part of a permanently restricted endowment, please call or text 202-662-3654 or email Donations@ChildrensDefense.org.
