Ludwick Family Foundation: Grants for Animals and Wildlife

OVERVIEW: The Ludwick Foundation supports a handful of animal and wildlife organizations across the United States.

IP TAKE: This funder tends to award project specific grants rather than those for general operating support.

PROFILE: Arthur and Sarah Ludwick founded the Ludwick Family Foundation, which is “committed to assisting a broad array of groups that are working to make a positive difference in the world.” Given the foundation’s rather broad-based approach, it does not name specific priority areas of grantmaking.

Ludwick awards grants to causes related to animals and wildlife. According to its latest tax filings, the Ghetto Rescue Foundation, which rescues strays from low-income neighborhoods, is a past grantee, having received support to purchase a transportation vehicle. America’s Vet Dogs is also a previous Ludwick grantee. The organization received support for the retrofitting of training and transportation vehicles.

Most Ludwick Foundation grants range from $10,000 to $100,000 and the foundation does not award many grants each year. Neither does the foundation accept unsolicited grant applications or requests for funding.
