A mission

to champion entrepreneurship


The foundation’s entrepreneurship initiatives are focused on second-stage companies — growth-oriented firms that have moved beyond the startup phase but haven’t yet reached maturity.

Land Stewardship

In addition to its focus on entrepreneurship, the foundation is committed to environmental conservation and maintaining the diverse native species found at Big Rock Valley.


The foundation preserves its heritage through a variety of tools and resources, including websites, multimedia productions, exhibits, publications and its archival collection.

Our Founders

Ed and Darlene Lowe established the Edward Lowe Foundation in 1985 as a national nonprofit organization. Their vision was to support entrepreneurship and land stewardship as strategies to make communities more vibrant places to live, work and play.

Both Ed and Darlene were entrepreneurs who believed that small businesses were the backbone of our country’s economy. They also had a great love of the land and appreciation for historic preservation.
