The Winn Feline Foundation advances feline health
by supporting research and education.

Every cat, every day benefits from Winn funded research.
Miller Trust Grant Review
Winn has been partnering with the San Francisco Foundation manager for the George Sydney and Phyllis Redman Miller Trust to make funds available for feline health studies.

Last year Winn funded 5 grants totaling $127,868 for studies in cats on
investigating gabapentin dosing in cats with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), using biomarkers to diagnose reflux disease, evaluating the use of mesenchymal stem cells as a treatment for inflammatory bowel disease and chronic gingivostomatitis and determining stress hormone levels in hair and nails of cats to measure chronic stress.

This year Winn received several outstanding research study proposals. Winn's Grant Review Committee has been reviewing these proposals and has recently determined support for many of them. Watch for more details to come about the exciting topics/subjects Winn will be supporting thru Miller Trust funds.
Planned Giving Tip for November

With the holiday season upon us it is important to remember the spirit of kindness and charity.  “Giving Tuesday” is held each year on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving.  In contrast to the commercial shopping events such as “Black Friday” and

“Cyber Monday” it helps focus attention on giving to charity during the holiday season. This year Giving Tuesday will be on November 27, 2018. If your holiday season includes charitable giving, please consider the Winn Feline Foundation. As a 501(c)(3) organization, your donations to Winn are tax deductible to the fullest extent under federal law. Since 1968, Winn Feline Foundation has funded over $6.4 million in health research for cats at more than 30 partner institutions world-wide.

Bria Fund Turns 13
Thirteen years ago on November 18th, Dr. Susan Little DVM, then President of the Winn Feline Foundation announced creation of the Bria Fund for FIP Research, dedicated to the study of Feline Infectious Peritonitis. 

Bria, a nine month old Birman kitten died from complications of FIP on April 19, 2005. In her memory, Bria's parents, Susan Gingrich and Jim
Shurskis, successfully approached Winn with their proposal for the Bria Fund. The original Winn announcement stated, "In memory of Bria, the fund will advance FIP research to hopefully someday eliminate it, or at the very least, develop an accurate test and make FIP a treatable, chronic illness."
