The sole objective of The Wanda Muntwyler Foundation is to further the prevention of cruelty to animals and strengthen the human-animal bond. The Foundation income shall be exclusively devoted to charitable or educational activities, which directly affect the care of animals. Since the Foundation's asset size is limited, funding will be given to areas that the grant committee feels can make the greatest impact and where the need is most critical. Those activities, at this time, shall be limited to projects within the state of Illinois. Specific purposes the foundation may support could include, but not necessarily be limited to, promoting the well being of animals; funding animal charities; awarding veterinary scholarships; encouraging the advancement of veterinary education and research into the causes and treatment of animal disease; protecting endangered species or creating open land preserves for wildlife, nature preserves or zoological parks.
