Regina Bauer Frankenberg Foundation
Regina Frankenberg directed that the remainder of her estate be used to establish a foundation to support organizations and programs that promote the care, conservation, treatment, well-being and prevention of cruelty to animals.
Animal welfare, through two focus areas:
- Protecting endangered and threatened species by supporting conservation and research; and
- Reducing the homelessness, mistreatment and euthanasia of companion animals through adoption, training, spay/neuter and other programs by providing capacity building and infrastructure grants to organizations doing this work.
The Foundation typically does not provide general operating support.
- With respect to wild animals: National, including U.S. organizations with international programs.
- With respect to companion animals: New York City and neighboring counties only.
No grants are made to individuals or private foundations or for matching gifts or loans. Organizations requesting support must have annual operating budgets of $250,000 or more. Organizations receiving support must not engage in or supply animals for vivisection. The Foundation does not provide support for projects in which animals are held in captivity and also does not make grants to wildlife sanctuaries.
Organizations must be classified by the Internal Revenue Service as public charities and tax-exempt under section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986.
The annual application deadline is July 1. If July 1 falls on a weekend, the deadline is the next business day. Decisions are made before the Foundation’s fiscal year end, which is December 31.
