Maddie’s Fund® invests its resources in a commitment to keeping pets and people together, creating a safety net of care for animals in need and operating within a culture of inclusiveness and humility. We are working towards the day when the animal welfare field more accurately represents the diversity of our country.
We introduced a new grant opportunity to support the operations of U.S.-based Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC)-led government agencies or nonprofit animal welfare or veterinary medicine organizations. Our focus was on organizations who primarily deal with dogs and/or cats and/or their people.
This $1 million grant opportunity was intended to provide operating support to qualifying organizations. Grants ranged from $5,000 to $50,000 depending on community size, organization size and demographics and impact the organization has in their community.
We are thrilled to share the list of 107 grant recipients, spanning across 34 states. Please join us in congratulating these leaders, their organizations and the wonderful work they’re doing to support pets and people!
