Introduction

Maddie's Fund is a family foundation endowed by the founder of Workday and PeopleSoft, Dave Duffield, and his wife, Cheryl.

Maddie's Fund is helping to achieve and sustain a no-kill nation by providing solutions to the most challenging issues facing the animal welfare community through the combined efforts of Maddie's Grant Giving, Maddie's Center (hands-on animal care), and Maddie's Institute (research and education).

Maddie's Fund is named after the family's beloved Miniature Schnauzer who passed away in 1997.

Since 1999, Maddie's Fund has awarded animal welfare organizations and universities $128.5 million to save animal lives.
