Due to COVID-19 and the impact on schools opening and running as normal in the fall, the Charlotte Helen Bacon Foundation has made to decision to pause our Charlotte’s Litter Therapy Dog grants for August 2020. The foundation will assess the current situation in December and make a decision regarding resuming grants during the next grant cycle that is scheduled for February 2021. We are saddened that there will be no funding available during our August grant cycle, 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. Be on the lookout as we share progress in this area.
