The Foundation was established to improve the status of animals worldwide through studies of the science and philosophy of animal welfare/rights and to reduce, through practical efforts and initiatives, the suffering and harm inflicted on animals by human beings.
Grants may be made to organizational or institutional projects, grassroots activities, or academic studies that promise to advance animal welfare.
Grants will not be awarded to improve animal health, to provide for spay/neuter assistance, to save endangered species, to rehabilitate wildlife, to conserve/protect wild animal populations or to support political candidates. Municipalities and municipal agencies are NOT eligible. Animal sanctuaries will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
