Because reaching full potential is every child’s birthright
and private philanthropy can help level the playing field
Animals can literally save us, and we should work hard to save them.

About the LaureL Foundation Logotype

The LaureL Foundation makes grants to nonprofit organizations, primarily in Northern California, that have demonstrated a commitment to the care and stewardship of the natural world, the empowerment of women and girls, animal welfare, K-12 education, and the delivery of social services to disadvantaged people. We specifically look for programs that (a) demonstrate a superior level of integrity and transparency, (b) offer novel and innovative approaches to complex or seemingly intractable problems, and (c) fall into more than one of the Foundation’s interest areas. (Grants to support K-12 STEM education and health-related research and education are awarded through a related charitable entity, the LaureL STEM Fund.)
