Financial Supporters

Kitizen Science's development was made possible by funding from our Executive Director as well as donations from the public.

To fund improvements to our software and to begin our 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®.

In 2023, The Humane Society of the United States awarded us a grant to support our research.
