Programs: Grants Program
ISF emergency medical care grant for animals - Established in February of 2014. The grant provides financial assistance to animal welfare organizations, agencies, and individual rescuers responsible for the care of animals recovering from abuse, neglect, injuries suffered from a traumatic event, or other illness. The purpose of this grant is to provide animal victims a second chance by alleviating their rescuers of the financial stress of treatment so they can focus on facilitating the animal's adoption into a permanent, loving home. In 2014, ISF granted $75,000 helping 204 creatures, including dogs, cats, horses, and other farm, exotic, and wildlife animals. Each animal's journey showed us the true meaning of strength, love, and will, for both man and animal.
Individual grants - ISF granted $5000 to the Savory Institute in support of its charitable mission to promote large-scale restoration of the world's grasslands through holistic management using properly managed livestock to heal the land and empower others to do the same. The Savory Institute seeks to remove barriers on the path to large-scale success through activities such as conducting research, creating market incentives, and raising public awareness.

Public Outreach & Education - provides information to educate and engage supporters and to create public awareness of issues that are vital to ISF's charitable mission. In 2014, ISF provided daily social media postings to more than one million supporters via Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. The ISF website currently provides information, educational content, and assistance, including 15 to 20 new articles per month, creative supporter challenges, and access to ISF's grant programs. ISF also began an extensive redesign of its website which will allow it to deliver even more program content in a user-friendly way. ISF volunteer and internship opportunities allowed supporters to gain hands-on experience and ISF booths at events across the country allowed for valuable in-person outreach. ISF efforts further included strategic partnerships, celebrity engagement, cause marketing, traditional media relations, and campaigns including coal sucks, plastic straws can suck it, green your thirst, and #istandfor. ISF collaborated with and granted $3000 to Connecther in support of the Girls Impact the World Film Festival and the Green IS Award in which high school and undergraduate college students submit three- to five-minute short films that either propose solutions to environmental issues that impact women and girls or create awareness about environmental issues that impact women and girls. Topics included climate change; green energy; water; pollution, garbage, and waste reduction; bio-diversity; and other issues. One of the 2014 Green IS award winning filmmakers has gone on to screen her film about the health complications related to excessive use of chemical pesticides and the importance of organic farming for lawmakers across the middle east, triggering the introduction of new laws to stop the use of harmful pesticides. ISF's President and co-founder, Ian Somerhalder was designated as a United Nations Environment Programme Goodwill Ambassador. Ian, in his role as a UNEP ambassador and as ISF's President, collaborated with ISF to "connect to go greener", with a specific call for communities - including businesses, organizations, schools and individuals - to connect their resources and skills for a more sustainable, resource-efficient way of living. As president of ISF, Ian Somerhalder appeared before the U.S. House of Representatives committee on natural resources, where he testified in support of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife service's plan for a ban on commercial trade in elephant ivory. He also emphasized the importance of the multinational species conservation funds (MSFC), established by Congress to provide support for the protection of elephants, rhinos, tigers, and other species. Ian encouraged the subcommittee to extend the MSFC semipostal stamp, which raises critical funding for anti-poaching activities through purchases of the stamp by the public.

ISF Creatures Program
Spay and neuter clinics - ISF went to Tylertown, Mississippi, and, in collaboration with St. Francis animal sanctuary, performed over 100 spay and neuter procedures in addition to general exams and rabies vaccinations. ISF provided both funding, via a $5,000 grant, and volunteer medical services. Spay/neuter services not only serve to control animal overpopulation, but also are often medically beneficial for animals placing them at lower risk for infection and disease. Providing free and/or affordable spaying and neutering plays an important role in our efforts to end euthanasia and animal homelessness. Creatures division campaigns - ISF's #time4thetalk campaign launched with a hilarious and informative video crafted to get people talking about the birds and the bees as pollinators. #time4thetalk followed up with monthly articles and a milk seed giveaway helping to spread the word about how important pollinators are to the survival of all creatures. The overconsumption of meat and its dangers to animals, our health, and the environment was highlighted via the Meatless Monday campaign. ISF asked people to think twice about wearing someone else's skin in the don't hide campaign focusing on conscious consumerism and why we should avoid leather, fur, and other hide-based industries. We explored the environmental hazards that come from the tanning process as well as uncovered some of the animal cruelty that is often involved in the making of these products.

ISF Youth Program (17 and under)
Youth Volunteer Program - a program for inspiring, global changemakers under the age of 18 who complete a 1 year volunteer program with ISF. Each of the youth are selected to be a part of this program from their applications describing their passions, talents and why they want to save our Planet and Creatures. Our program mission is to educate and support the rising generations to take action and to inspire hope and change for our planet. Throughout the year, the youth create and implement dozens of projects & campaigns globally including: community clean ups, shelter food & supply drives, organic gardening, anti-plastic efforts, school focused projects, recycling focused projects and individual passion projects for the betterment of the planet, animals and their futures.
Youth Days - ISF Youth Days are impactful and uniting one day mini events where kids and teens join ISF, collaborating organizations and facilities in an engaging volunteer day to help the planet. Each Youth Day is a unique experience involving our ISF mission of positively impacting either the environment, creatures or both.
Youth Days may include:
Animal Sanctuaries (Farm, Exotic, Domestic)
Parks/Nature Preserves
Schools/Clubs/Camps
Animal rescues
Recycling facilities
Businesses that practice green policies
Companies that come up with and/or make eco-friendly products

As a small 501c3 run through volunteers and donations, unexpected medical emergencies can often deplete our resources. Our primary goal is always to do whatever is best for our kitties regardless of how it affects our hearts, so when we found ourselves in a desperate situation, we reached out and the Ian Somerhalder Foundation was right there willing and able to assist us. We cannot thank you enough for your role in Speed Bump’s care.

Speed Bump overcame so much in his brief life, from being hit by a car and unable to walk, to regaining mobility, and showing us that there are no limits; joy can be found no matter your circumstances. Through every stage and every challenge that he faced, Speed Bump had met it head on with a quiet strength and dignity that was unmatched. He has taught us that life should be appreciated in the moment, and that no matter the outcome, if you approach every situation with love, that you will find joy present.
To say that he is the sweetest cat we've ever met is an understatement and cannot begin to describe Speed Bump. When he was first brought home, he would often drag himself to his Foster so that he could simply be touching her then purr contentedly. Then came the days he would race through the house with a crooked gait, enjoyed wrestling and grooming the foster kittens, snuggled with the other cats and dog in his foster home and liked nothing more than to be cuddled and have his belly rubbed. He would gaze at you with those amber eyes that simply ooze love and adoration. He liked to chase pom pom balls and was quick to scale the cat tree. He enjoyed hanging out on the screened porch and hot days would find him laying on top of the floor vent, unashamedly hogging all of the A/C.
He was a quiet boy who trilled when he was happy and purred constantly even while being expressed. He learned his routine and would bolt to his crate at night for his nighttime snack and in the morning stretched lazily and waited to start the day. Even at the vet, they never had a cross moment from him, always rolling around in his kennel soliciting pets.
If there was ever a pet deserving of a long and happy tail, Speed Bump would have been the one. His life, although brief, was filled with happiness, he was beyond adored, and if love could have saved him, he’d have lived forever!

We’ve enclosed some pictures of him as well so you can see the wonder and joy that he was.

The Ian Somerhalder Foundation was incredibly generous to our rescue in helping us raise funds for a very difficult rescue/abuse case. We were notified very quickly that we had been approved for the gift, and received the funds much faster than I had expected. Thanks in part to their help, Oliver has made a full recovery!

I have volunteered with ISF for over 7 years now. I have watched them grow and expand and unlike most organizations that get larger and forget their original goals, ISF has continued to pursue their original goals and enhance them into larger goals to better communities and the treatment of animals and our environment. It is a beautiful organization with a beautiful heart and I so enjoy being a small part of it as a volunteer. They truly inspire others and inspire to encourage others and give confidence to keep their goals spreading.

The people I have met through ISF have become like a family to me. Starting in undergrad with an article, I slowly became more involved. Years later I am so glad I did. ISF is focused on what I am most passionate about and I love to educate others about it. As a humane educator and veterinarian in progress, I feel confident in promoting and sharing the mission of ISF both personally and one day professionally. I would not be the same person if not for Ian and ISF.

Where to begin? This organization is amazing. It is all about empowering others to care for the environment, it's animals, and also humans. The volunteers work together to accomplish this goal. I have had the privilege to have started with the College team and moved over to the Youth division. There is something so unique about this organization. While its main focuses are creatures and environment, there is also an amazing amount of emphasizing just being an overall good person. It has been an amazing almost 7 years, and I can't wait for more!

I've been a volunteer at The Ian Somerhalder Foundation for almost 7 years.

I found ISF at a time where I didn't know how to affect change or to be of help to the environment, its creatures and the issues that threaten this world we live in. ISF changed that from day one, morphing hopelessness into empowerment and helping me be of help where it matters.

Over the years, through showing up, being part of this foundation, collaborating with people, working on relevant causes, fighting for those that do not have a voice and educating those that do, I've learned that everyone's contribution matters. That we have in us the power to make this planet a better, safer and more sustainable places. That human beings can rise to the occasion and be extraordinary and that animals have in them an infinite capacity for love.

I can't say enough good things about ISF, about the people that work tirelessly to make it happen. To the people that share our dream and help in any way they can. For me, it's been an extraordinary journey in the company of the most amazing like minded people that have become friends, family, mentors and living inspirations. I am grateful beyond words to be part of such a great foundation!

The Ian Somerhalder Foundation is an amazing organization. Fiona and Phantom were sitting in pain, with nobody to help them, at an overcrowded animal control that was getting ready to euthanize animals. Fiona had been returned (at half her weight) with jaundice and was very ill. Phantom had a huge wound on his face and a painful bulging eye from several different traumas. We knew we needed to help these two get emergency care, and also find a better life. So we rescued them and brought them to an emergency veterinarian for care. We also reached out to The Ian Somerhalder Foundation who immediately said “Yes!” to our Emergency Care grant request. We were most grateful for their support as the medical bills were going to be quite large. Their support didn’t stop there, though. As Fiona and Phantom healed, we got notes of encouragement from ISF, and when these two were well, and very quickly found their forever, loving homes, ISF cheered with us at the good news. We couldn’t have asked for a more caring, compassionate and better partner than The Ian Somerhalder Foundation. The process was simple, easy and their team so very easy to work with. Thank you ISF!

Our rescue had taken in a dog that has a partially healed elbow fracture, and required an expensive procedure. Since we had just started our non profit back up in March of 2018, we were limited on resources, but were bound to help this pup regardless. We reached out and followed the proper steps to fill out the application for a grant from ISF. Their application process was easy, thorough and the responses were fast. We were fortunate they were able to help us, and their team provided support throughout the entire process. Thank you ISF!!!!

I volunteer with a Shenandoah Shepherd Rescue and we were contacted by a high kill shelter about a young dog that was hit by a car and had broken legs. Instead of allowing the shelter to euthanize him, SSR took him into the rescue to receive costly surgery and treatment. If is was not for the help of the Ian Somerhalder Foundation grant, Leo might not have been able to receive the urgent medical care he needed to save his life.

I am a Board member and foster care provider for Take Paws Rescue in New Orleans. We reached out to ISF for an emergency medical grant for a small dog that had been beaten and abused until it could not walk and then surrendered because the owners could not care for the dog or afford the vet bills to help him. Buddy needed spinal surgery, and had an excellent prognosis, but the rescue could not afford the necessary surgery without significant help. ISF was quick, responsive, and saved the day. The is an amazing organization of caring individuals and I cannot say enough good things about them. Buddy had his surgery, is walking really well, is no longer in pain, and has been adopted and will live happily ever after!

I can't say enough good things about this organization.
ISF is different. They recognize that there are challenges inherent in trying to be completely sustainable. They don't exclude you if you can't meet sustainability 100%. Rather they welcome all who are willing to take whatever steps they can towards improvement. They teach with an open mind. They encourage every effort no matter how small. Encouragement is the name of the game - not discouragement for not being 'good enough'
I always compare the philosophy that every effort counts no matter how small to playing a game at the carnival. You play and you win, but its just a small prize.
But you keep at it, you don't give up. And you keep winning small prizes.
Pretty soon you can trade in those small prizes for a large prize.
Lots of small changes WILL add up to big change for the planet, so just do what you can when you can.
Education. Effort, Acceptance. Compassion.
These are the keys to a better future.
The people I have met through ISF have vastly improved my life. The kindness and support I have experienced has honestly been life changing. I have been given the opportunity to support and help others. I have had others support and help me. I have had kids 'adopt' me as an 'aunt' with the full support of their parents who have adopted me as a friend. I have learned new skills I might not have explored had I not encountered such a supportive group of people as my ISFAMILY
I want to take a moment to add something else if I may -
I am always disheartened when I see people frustrated that the animal sanctuary hasn't come to fruition yet.
I feel bad because it seems the default thinking is that there is something untoward happening with donations.
The land has been purchased, but that is only one small step towards the realization of the dream. The reality is that there are a tremendous amount of laws and regulations to be navigated with any large undertaking and that costs money. It costs money to build the infrastructure on the purchased land. It costs money to maintain that infrastructure. It costs money to transport and then support any animals that would call this place home. It costs money to create an education center.
And the fact is it costs money to generate money.
And it takes time to generate the money.
I applaud the Foundation for simultaneously working towards the dream of a sanctuary / preserve and providing monetary grants to many other organizations to aid the planet and its creatures. They found a way to give some immediate help to the world while still working to grow this dream.
I applaud the volunteers who work tirelessly to help keep the mission moving forward.
I am a donor and supporter for the long haul. I am proud to say so.

My name is Candi Fair. I am one of many volunteers of the Ian Somerhalder Foundation(ISF).

During the several years I have had the honor to work within the Youth Focus Area, I have seen the heart and soul of ISF.....the volunteers working countless hours behind the scenes making sure everything runs like a well oiled machine...I have had the honor to be empowered not only by my fellow volunteers but especially by the Youth that we work with every day.

These Youth are passionate, driven, intelligent and full of love. They strive to heal our world and that is exactly what they are doing! From being strong voiced animal advocates, to rolling up their sleeves and cleaning up their communities, to instilling recycling programs in their schools....these kids go above and beyond to help the world and each other and ISF is that platform they are standing on to reach those high places. ISF empowers them and educates them and and gives them the tools they need to get their voices heard in a noisy ,chaotic world that drowns them out.
I have spoken with kids who are so passionate and driven about issues of bullying in their school that they talk to me with tears in their eyes and shaky voices only to watch them stand taller and stronger than most adults I know to step forward and be the one to make that initial change and help their fellow classmates find the friends and help they need.
ISF gives a voice to our smallest changemakers and boy are they being heard!

Of course the Youth is only one Focus Area within ISF...we are also involved in Animal advocacy, Environmental Conservation,focusing on water and also a brilliant Grassroots initiatives program!

ISF is an amazing non profit that is doing great things in this world..just stand back and watch us!

ISF gives young people the tools, platforms and encouragement and education to help them find their passions and strive to see them come to life. I feel VERY fortunate to get the honor to work with kids who are actively and passionately engaging each other and their communities to "Do Better" for our world, to make an actual, tangible difference..... that's where ISF stands apart from other foundations.....the kids have the control to participate in projects and grassroot inituitives or any other positive ,change making ideas they want .....and they are doing it big!!!
I have participated in two ISF YOUTH DAYS with these awesome young people. ISF YOUTH DAYS are days set aside for our ISF YOUTH to come together in different parts of our country to roll up their sleeves and volunteer at specific locations that need our help. From traveling to Flint Michigan to help with their water crisis to traveling to Georgia to volunteer at an animal sanctuary, I have had the AMAZING privilege to witness the passion and excitement of these kids who are eager to help, volunteer, roll up their sleeves and not afraid to use their voices and speak their minds. Their ideas, heart and pure will, encourage me everyday! Thanks to ISF our most valuable resource, our YOUTH, has a voice and are making a positive impact on our world and all it's inhabitants.

ISF promptly stepped forward to help our small nonprofit save the life of an older given-up chihuahua who required complicated and expensive dental surgery to save him from further misery and the risk of a life-ending infection. When we fumbled a response to one of its emails, the foundation contact was understanding and helpful. Thank you, ISF, for all you did for Cody!

The Ian Somerhalder Foundation is doing wonderful things for animals! Through targeted funding, they make possible treatments and projects that otherwise couldn't happen - to the benefit of many animals in need. In Cape Cod, Massachusetts, they are helped a harbor seal and a Kemp's ridley sea turtle with serious medical issues recover so each could be released back to the wild. The National Marine Life Center in Buzzards Bay, Massachusetts is truly grateful for ISF support.

What a blessing to have been granted funding to help our rescue treat little Mika. The entire process was quick and efficient. We received an answer within a couple days and the reports were straight forward and easy to complete. Little Mika had a ear canal damaged by an unknown cause and needed treatment to get her ready for adoption. I have attached a few of her photos.

This is a second review for this amazing foundation. They have become a great partner for us. They have provided numerous grants for us all for medical emergencies. The last grant was for Louie, a senior rat terrier, who required an amputation. Their staff is amazing and always helpful. Their assistance to us has enabled us to get funds to treat these dogs (typically from our county shelter) and get them medical treatment quickly. We largely focus on senior dogs which require more medical care and have less adoption prospects at our county shelter. Without the IS Foundation, we would not be able accomplish as much as we did in the last couple of years. We are so appreciative for all their assistance and highly recommend this organization.

As the president of an animal rescue specializing in traumatic surgical cases, finding emergency funding for the procedures is my biggest priority and I have truly found an amazing partner with the Ian Somerhalder Foundation.
The application process is easy, the response time is very quick and personable and they understand the urgency of the matter.
I support whole heartedly the ISF as they lead by example, always putting their heart first for the voiceless animals in need.
Thank you so much Ian for creating such a wonderful organization.

The Ian Somerhalder Foundation has opened my eyes in regards to sustainability & the protection of our Earth. I was able to volunteer for a beach clean up in Flint, Michigan in hopes of bringing awareness of the terrible conditions of the water in Flint. It also brings awareness of polluted ocean water all over the world. The day was dedicated to the youth. They genuinely care about the health of our planet because of ISF & because their parents know how important sustainability is. If the youth can have a clear understanding of the negative effects certain things have on our planet today, it can really pave the way to a healthier & greener planet.

I was a MobSTIR (Youth Volunteer) for ISF for the year 2016. Firstly, the reason why I applied for the position was because I genuinely loved and still love ISF's purpose. It works towards helping the environment and the creatures in it. The one thing that I believe makes ISF truly stand out amongst all the other non-profits I came across is it's Youth Division; ISF allows the children of today to take part in the glorious work of helping the community. This is very important for the youth of today because they need to learn the responsibility they have towards the world around them and understand the true meaning of love. That is what ISF is for me; love and more love for everyone and everything. I'm from Bangladesh and the way I have been loved and supported by all the ISF members in every way possible is heart touching. I worked on a couple of projects for ISF but, growing vegetables was the best because it was the first time I had done full planting myself. ❤️

My son is six years old and is incredibly passionate about the environment - animal and ocean protection, in particular. He loves sharks and wants to be a shark biologist when he grows up.

There are not a lot of organizations that involve youth as thoroughly as ISF.

This organization not only provides him with ideas and information, it connects him to likeminded people and allows him to have a voice, even at the age of six.

This organization does tremendous work. I see it every day in how my son is learning to view and help the world.

Truffle was a victim of hit and run by a car on a street in Philadelphia, PA. She was picked up by animal control and taken to the city shelter where she was covered in lacerations and barely able to walk. With less than an hour to live before she would have been euthanized due to her injuries that the shelter could not treat, Finding Shelter committed to saving her life and immediately had her transported to a local, 24 hour specialty and emergency vet hospital. Truffle had two broken legs, wounds on her body that needed to be cleaned and healed but she was a good patient and had a good prognosis. Truffle needed surgery to repair her crushed bones and needed to wear bandages on her legs for stability as her bones were healing. Her veterinary care was going to cost thousands of dollars and thanks to the help of the Ian Somerhalder Foundation, Truffle was able to get the life saving care she needed. Truffle not only made a full recovery but was adopted by her foster family and is now living her happily ever after with the people she loves most. Without the medical care she needed, she would not have survived. The generosity of ISF meant a world of difference to an amazing dog and her wonderful family. They were caring, professional and so encouraging and helpful through the grant process and cared about her progress. Thank you Ian Somerhalder Foundation!

Hello; My name is Guinevere now. I don't remember what it was before. Yes...before..I had a family you see but when I got older and my mouth got stinky my family threw me away..and I mean threw...See I am only 3 pounds and when I hit the bottom of the box I hurt my eye too. Box? What does this wee one mean by box? Well..you see..at many of those places I learned are called shelters there is a box that you can throw away your trash family pets..then come back and get new shiny ones...So I was thrown away in a box...I was very scared in there. Other doggies very scared too so we all just sit in the dark and cold and stay very quiet.
My new foster mommy is the boss of a small dog rescue group and when she saw me she knew she had to save me..But I had very stinky mouth that Mommy says was infected so we beg this nice company (mommy loves Damon) to help with money for to fix my stinky mouth...Now I no stinky anymore and I have no teeth any more. I eat nice kibble food because I don't chew anyway. I love my new home. So Thank you very much nice company...I love you!!!!

Stray Cat Alliance reached out to the Ian Somerhalder Foundation for support of one of 101 cats rescued in a felony hoarding rescue case they took on called #OperationKern100 that began in February 2016.

One of the wonderful cats who needed support was Lisa. She and her brother, Lopes, were some of the youngest cats at the "feral sanctuary" in the Mojave that was busted. All cats taken were into evidence at the Kern County Animal Shelter. Once Stray Cat Alliance realized no nonprofits had the capacity to help this large of a number of cats, they rallied support to begin to get help from them and prevent the Shelter from euthanizing them due to space.

SCA brought groups of cats 10-20 at a time down to Los Angeles to have them all vet checked to determine how to find fosters or adopters for the cats.

Both Lisa and Lopes needed eye removals due to genetic health issues. Stray Cat Alliance sent a proposal for support to the Ian Somerhalder Foundation who helped fund a majority of Lisa's surgery.

Lisa and Lopes had to to back and forth to their foster's home due to loss of his apartment and break up. But not too long afterwards, Colin, said he could not live without them. They now have a safe and loving home and even their own Instagram page, "Winking_Kitties", going under their new names, Winx (Lisa) and Jax (Lopes).

It was due to the generosity and compassionate support from the Ian Somerhalder Foundation that Lisa, now Winx, was able to be relieved from pain and live a happy, normal life with her new family.

The staff at the ISF is amazing and very caring in each of our dealings with them. They truly care about the animals. Thank you Ian Somerhalder and your wonderful Foundation for saving so many lives!!!

We are a small non-profit called Broken Promises SW located in rural southern New Mexico, and our mission is to reduce the community cat population through humane Trap/Neuter/Return. We trapped a feral kitten who needed to had an eye removed due to injury. Because our budget does not allow us to fund medical procedures beyond spay/neuter/microchip/vaccinations/ear tipping, we reached out to the Ian Somerhalder Foundation for help. ISF came through and covered the majority of out outstanding vet bill, allowing us to raise the remainder from friends and colleagues. Without the help of the Ian Somerhalder Foundation we would not have been able to give the kitten the care she needed.

Here is harleys story she was found on the side of the road at 6 weeks old once bringing her inside she was very ill showing all signs of possible parvo we rushed her to the vet to find out she had persistant right aeortic arch and needed open heart surgery immediatly, Of course that expense was extreme for us but with the help of iam Somerhalder our girl was saved. she still has a long way to go as at 9 months old she is still skin and bones but she will get to where she needs to be one day with the help of all of the amazing people that are in this little girls life!!!!!!

Noni, a one year old English Bulldog mix, had been rescued by an organization that found they could not afford the treatment she needed, so they asked Wish Bone Canine Rescue to take her in. Noni had been born with ectopic ureters, one draining into her urethra and one draining into her bladder. Her chances of adoption were slim because of the constant dribbling of urine. She had urine scalding on her external genitalia and legs, yet despite this painful condition, Noni was one of the happiest, friendliest dogs I had met in awhile. After meeting her, I knew we had to give her a chance at a normal life ... and then find her that forever family she deserved. Thanks to a generous grant from the Ian Somerhalder Foundation and some caring donors, we were able to have Noni's surgery performed quickly. Her surgery was totally successful and Noni has now been adopted by a wonderful family. The ISF reviews emergency grant requests very quickly and, if approved, immediately sends the grant to you, which makes it possible to get the treatment needed quickly.

ISF cares about the animals they help. They may never meet them in person, but their compassion is felt as if they had.
