The Damien James Shea Foundation
The Damien James Shea Foundation's mission is to recognize and reward
a high school student's character and strength for surviving tough times.

Your generous donation makes it easier.

HOME                             HISTORY                               RECIPIENTS

Donations are the fuel for our mandate. As we continue to find those adolescents who have had to call on character and grace beyond their years to deal with what life has given them, we believe that handing them a simple cash award is as good a way as any to say, “You did good.”  To do that, we need you to help us. 

The more that people donate, the more young men and women whom we can acknowledge.

Send your donations (in a Check or Money Order) to:

 Damien James Shea Foundation
401 Beech Avenue
Takoma Park, Maryland 20912

We will send you a receipt immediately on receiving it. Thank you.


Currently there are no fundraisers…. However, we plan a few in the near future. When we do, we’ll let you know. 

Gifts of Support

If you can donate $700 or more, Carollyn James, an acrylic portraitist, will donate a 10x12 inch facial portrait of you or whomever you choose.
