Investing in a Diverse Future

The Ryans are a diverse family who use their platform, both through their foundation and personally, to help animals throughout the nation.

We Love Animals

As one of the few animal-focused foundations with a Black founder and leader in Logan Ryan, RARF cannot ignore the fact that the animal welfare industry is one of the many industries lacking in diversity, inclusiveness, and equity.

Expanding and adapting to the needs of animals and those who are dedicated to helping them is at the core of the RARF mission. Investing in a Diverse Future is RARF’s new initiative which focuses on providing spotlights, resources and funding that will increase the representation of Black, brown, indigenous, and people of color within the animal welfare industry; and providing funding for programs that concentrate on creating equity and inclusion for people and animals.
