IP TAKE: The majority of Borick’s animal welfare grants range from $5,000 to $30,000.

PROFILE: Entrepreneur Louis Borick founded the Louis Borick Foundation in 1997 to “create opportunity for people to reach their full potential, positively contribute to society and participate in a culturally rich community by supporting education, youth, leadership development, and the arts.” The foundation supports LGBT, foster youth, animal welfare, preservation, and the arts.

 The foundation’s animal welfare program focuses specifically on “equine orthopedic studies.” However, Borick’s grantmaking reflects a broader interest in animal welfare. Past grantees include AniMeals No-Kill Adoption Center and Animal Food Bank, as well as, the Coachella Valley Wild Bird Center.

Borick’s average grants are between $10,000 and $50,000. Borick awards grants to organizations located across the United States, but prioritizes organizations located in Northern California, Southern California, and Texas.
