Would You Like to Join Us?

The mission of The Bower Fund is to enhance the quality of life for the children of Southern Nevada by improving access to quality healthcare and other essential needs through partnerships with community-based organizations.

Dr. Joel F. Bower

Our Founder

Originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Dr. Joel Bower and his wife, Carol Bower, moved to Henderson, Nevada in 1971.  Dr. Bower practiced medicine for over 35 years, both in private practice and within the Dignity Health (formerly known as St. Rose) hospital system.  

​​​​​​​During his career as an obstetrician, Dr. Bower delivered over 5,000 children and was an integral member of Henderson’s medical community.  In 2020, Dr. Bower founded The Bower Fund to provide a means for children, and their families, to access the healthcare and educational resources they need to thrive.

Who Else is on 
The Bower Fund Team?

Our team represents three generations of the Bower Family – grandparents, aunts, uncles and grandchildren included – as well as friends of the family.  

​​​​​​​We are leveraging our personal and professional experiences and deep roots in Southern Nevada to build a better community.  We work together to identify and support high-impact organizations in our community.
