Thank you to all those organizations who submitted proposals for the Latham 2021 Grant program.

Our focus on year was on the first three steps of the Latham Steps in Humane Education.

  • Programs that focus on animal-assisted activities that demonstrate people and animals working together for the benefit of both, and include humane education.
  • This year, 2021, we are giving priority to programs that include services to the military, veterans and their families.
  • Applicants must be U.S. organizations.

Having received funding requests of over five (5) times the available funds – our Grant Committee had a formidable job but was able to identify the those program they found to best exemplify the stated Latham goals.

All organizations have now been notified and thanked for their great works. It is truely inspiring to read about how much good work is being done all around the nation – most often by volunteers working to help the animals and people in their communities.


Latham Foundation is proud to announce the 2021 Latham Grants for Humane Education program is published and will accept proposals between July 1, 2021 and July 10, 2021 for grants to be awarded in September 2021. The grant program is open to all US organizations whose programs demonstrate and promote the values of humane education guidelines and follow the grant program eligibility guidelines.

For the 2021 grant program, we are giving priority to programs that include services to military, veterans and their families. This is to recognize and thank our military services to others as described in the first four of the Latham Steps to Humane Education.

Proposals must be submitted online between July 1, 2021 and July 10, 2021 using the Latham website forms. We do not accept proposals by mail.

Details about the Latham grant program are published on our website and continue the Latham values in humane education we have promoted since our founding in 1918.

Latham has compiled a book of kindness messages from this year. We received so many positive comments as we shared them this year, and we hope you will be able to continue to share them with your friends as a reminder we all have ways to help each other and be kind all year. Get yours now –
