Latham Foundation for the Promotion of Humane EducationDeadline: December 28, 2018
The Latham Foundation for the Promotion of Humane Education was founded to teach kindness and respect for all living things. The Foundation’s view of respect means taking personal responsibility for making good decisions within one’s own community rather than advocating any one particular dietary, political, environmental, or religious view—and respecting others’ right to do the same. The Foundation has two main categories of funding:
- Humane education outreach programs
- Research on the efficacy of humane education
Applicants are encouraged to show how their programs align with the Foundation’s hierarchy of human education:
- Kindness to animals: Builds compassion and empathy for other living creatures
- Kindness to each other: Guides the interaction between people of the same family or social group
- Kindness in other people: Guides the interaction between people of different families or social groups when they meet in a common place
- Kindness to our country: Encourages national common respect for the laws of one’s own nation, traditions, and political structure
- Kindness to other nations: Encourages respect for other nations and their unique laws and traditions
- Kindness to the world: Shows respect for the whole world, for other nations collectively living their varied lives
Amount: Awards will range from $5,000–$10,000 for a one-year grant and up to $15,000 for a two-year grant.
Eligibility: Organizations that promote humane education through their outreach programs or that conduct research into the efficacy of humane education. Nonprofit organizations will have priority but grants will not be limited to those who have attained 501(c)(3) status. There are no geographic restrictions.
