What is Latham?

The Latham Foundation for the Promotion of Humane Education has a mission to promote classic humane education. This simple charter is what we continue to honor as are celebrating over 94 years of operation.
Latham is also a producer and distributor of affordable videos and publications on the above topics and the publisher of the Latham Letter. Latham encourages cooperation between agencies to improve our society.

How can I support the Foundation’s work?

Asking the question is the first step.
As producers of humane educational materials for the benefit of both humans and non-humans, the Foundation relies on its members who reside in various locations throughout the United States for assistance in representing it and its services to their communities.
As a supporting member, you help support our ongoing work, gain a discount on all Latham materials, and then can help in your community even more effectively.
Latham does accept donations right on the website. We also accept stocks or securities that you may wish to donate, contact us for details.

What is the best method of shipping my Latham order?

That is a complex question.
First, your order for Latham materials is FOB, Alameda at the Latham offices and we will send using your choice of carrier. Title to the product passes to you when we deliver the package to the carrier.
Latham strongly recommend using a carrier service that can be traced and will guarantee delivery. Carriers like UPS, Fedex and some of the Post Office services all can be traced and may guarantee delivery.
Use of the least expensive Post Office mailings, like Media Mail are entirely at your own risk. We have had some customers find significant delay in delivery, or may not even receive it at all when using this method.
Canadian customers have found unexpected Revenue Canada fees when they use UPS for some reason. We have never understood that, but do suggest Canadian customers use US Mail/CANADA POST service to avoid possible extra tax fees for that reason.

Does The Latham Foundation make cash grants?

No. As a private operating foundation, Latham does not make cash grants; rather, it works in many non-partisan roles including publisher, producer, facilitator, sponsor, and colleague.

Latham does recognize true need, and has programs available for replacing humane educational materials at centers that have experienced disasters.

How can we include our upcoming event in the Latham Letter and on your list?

Latham is happy to help publicize events of organizations helping in our field. Send all relevant information (date, time, location, sponsoring agency(ies), cost, contact person for further information, etc.) via e-mail to or fax to 510-521-9861. Latham reserves the right to list only those submissions that reflect the Foundation’s focus, scope, and quality.
