Overview:

Lauren Townsend Memorial Wildlife Fund Grants

The Lauren Townsend Memorial Wildlife Fund was established in 1999 by the family of Lauren Townsend, a vibrant and inspiring young woman who was a class valedictorian and co-captain of the girls’ volleyball team at Columbine High School. Lauren was one of 13 victims killed in the shootings on April 20, 1999.

Lauren worked at an animal hospital and loved everything from wolves to spiders and any other animal that needed protection. “We established the fund to honor Lauren’s love for animals and learning,” said Dawn Anna, Lauren’s mother. She would be humbled to know that she is still able to help others even after her death.

The fund awards grants to nonprofit organizations that focus on animal welfare or wildlife preservation. Organizations that need funding for a specific project and smaller nonprofit organizations are particularly encouraged to apply.
