The Katey Howes Fund

Friends of Kathryn “Katey” Howes have established The Katey Howes Fund at the Highlights Foundation, in order to support scholarships in her memory.

The goal is to support a Katey Howes Maker Scholarship to honor Katey’s focus on encouraging children to build strong selves and strong communities with curiosity and compassion. Katey was an advocate for excellence in children’s books, making each of her own unique and empowering. Her work brought together themes of self-awareness, bravery, social justice, and becoming a change-maker!

We hope that any monies raised will encourage children and fellow storytellers to build a better world.
