An Animal Centered Social Philanthropy®
The Irving and Phyllis Millstein Foundation for Animal Welfare® serves animal and human needs through grants and programs provided to 501(c)(3) organizations. Support is given for Outreach, Animal Relocation, Animal Care, Shelter/Capital
Support, and Veterinary Medical Aid, helping dog, cat, and horse populations.
The Foundation's mission is to protect, care for, and support vulnerable, at-risk animals, and to address animal-related human conditions, connections, and bonds. Irving and Phyllis valued the human and animal relationship, and the Foundation provides grants and programs that foster and preserve these relationships. Grantmaking procedures are consultative and problem-solving.
For more information about the Foundation's mission and vision, both within the context of public policy, and how the Foundation operates, please read Foundation Policy Statement and Foundation Organization and Approach.
The Foundation’s goal is to extend and promote human/animal companionship and relationships through traditional grants and Foundation programs that address animal-centered social needs. Millstein Veterinary Project®
grants fund the efforts of public charities to overcome barriers to proper animal care by pet owners, whether due to economic conditions or geographic access to care, and are comprised of Millstein MVP® sponsorships addressing vaccination drives and spay/neuter clinics.
