Humane Company Program
Companies gave $14.5 billion to charities in 2008, according to the Giving Institute, a report compiled annually by the American Association of Fundraising Counsel. A portion of this amount is given specifically to health charities that ultimately use it to fund animal experiments.
The Council on Humane Giving has launched the Humane Company Program to encourage corporations to direct their donations to humane charities, to earmark them for nonanimal research, or to fund alternatives development.
The Council has compiled a list of these responsible corporations and is promoting their humane giving policy to our members and members of the public. You will be able to determine easily which companies you want to support. At the same time, The Council continues to meet with many additional corporations to urge them to make concrete plans to shift financial support to humane charities.
You can help support this program: If you work for, own, or patronize a company, please make inquiries into the charities it supports and its charitable giving policies. While more transparent companies may disclose this information on their websites, you may need to contact others directly to obtain the most complete and up-to-date information.
To notify the Council about humane corporations or for more information, please contact the Council on Humane Giving.
