Financial Supporters

Kitizen Science's development and validation phase was made possible by funding from our Executive Director as well as contributions from the public.

To fund improvements to our app and citizen science software, as well as to begin our long-term cat population monitoring work, we were awarded a $175,000 grant by the 2020 Innovation Showdown, with an additional grant of $45,000 in 2021. Thank you to this unique fund for new ideas in animal welfare, made possible by the Annenberg Foundation & Wallis Annenberg PetSpace, ASPCA, Best Friends Animal Society, Dave & Cheryl Duffield Foundation, The Jackson Galaxy Project, Maddie’s Fund®, Mary Jo & Hank Greenberg Animal Welfare Foundation, Michelson Found Animals Foundation, the Petco Foundation, and PetSmart Charities®.
