The Megan Montgomery Foundation is making a difference in the fight against relationship violence. Created in memory of Megan Montgomery, who tragically lost her life at the hands of her ex-husband after she escaped him, the foundation is on a mission toprevent relationship violence BEFORE it starts. Megan’s sister, mom, and step-dad founded the organization to fulfill her vision of warning other young women about the red flags of a potentially controlling or abusive partner.

Since its inception, the foundation has distributed $134,000 in grants
to schools and nonprofits, providing age-appropriate and evidence- based healthy relationship programs. The impact of their work has been recognized by the Alabama U.S. Attorney’s Office: “Currently, across Alabama there are insufficient resources of prevention education and healthy relationship modeling for youth and young adults. The Megan Montgomery Foundation is the best partner that the United States Attorney’s Office of North Alabama has in remedying this deficiency within our federal district.”

Their efforts were recently recognized by being named the 2024 Top Young Non-Profit; by the Birmingham Business Journal, for their commitment to empowering students to recognize the characteristics of unhealthy relationship behaviors.
