Coronavirus (COVID-19) statement

UPDATED: November 18, 2020

Due to COVID-19 and the impact on schools opening and running as normal, the Charlotte Helen Bacon Foundation has made to decision to pause our Charlotte’s Litter Therapy Dog grants for August 2020 and Feburary 2021. The foundation will assess the situation in early 2021 and make a decision on when to resume grant funding. We are saddened that there will be no funding available for now, but feel confident that when schools are able and ready to embrace the love of therapy dogs again, Charlotte’s Litter will be there to help.

Programs that have already received funding through our Charlotte’s Litter Therapy Dog program will not be affected.

As we pause Charlotte’s Litter, we have turned our focus to supporting our Grief and Bereavement Initiative. During these times, the need for this support is even more obvious.

Laura is a volunteer Board Member for the Charlotte Helen Bacon Foundation. In her role, she helps support the mission of keeping Charlotte’s memory alive by funding programs, scholarships and research initiatives that honor Charlotte’s life and the Bacon family’s experiences.
