The Alex Lowe Charitable Foundation (ALCF) is dedicated to preserving Alex Lowe’s legacy by providing direction and financial support to sustainable, community-based humanitarian programs designed to help the people who live in remote regions of the world. This foundation carries on Alex’s spirit of adventure.
Several years ago, the ALCF established the Widows' Relief Fund to earmark donations for the families of Sherpas lost in their extremely dangerous vocation, working in the high mountains. Although most working Sherpa have a small insurance policy, it is not enough to compensate for the loss of a major wage earner. Many families live in remote areas of the Khumbu or Solu region. Our trusted on the ground staff in Nepal and at KCC is willing and able to help dispense funds to the families of those lost. They are the KCC family.
