Welcome to the T.S. & K.D. Glide Foundation
Thornton ("Tawny") S. Glide, Jr. and his wife, Katrina ("Scatter") Dangberg Glide, were long-time residents of the T.S. Glide Ranch in Yolo County, California. They owned and operated farms and ranches in and about Northern California. Their interests were horses and other animals, farming, preserving open spaces, and civic endeavors.
Upon their respective deaths in July 1995, they established the Thornton S. Glide, Jr. and Katrina D. Glide Foundation, a perpetual California charitable trust. Its purpose is to provide benefits for qualified organizations committed to animal protection organizations, other land and wildlife conservancy groups, agricultural purposes, preservation of land in its natural state, and opera, symphony, and other similar civic organizations. The recipients of such benefits must be charitable qualified as such under U.S. Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3) and California Revenue and Taxation Code Section 23701(d).
In addition to providing grants to qualified organizations the Foundation conducts its own charitable rescue operations at both the Pierce and Home Ranch Locations. The rescues have involved last chance, neglected and abused horses, cattle, sheep, goats, pot belly pigs and donkeys that were brought to the Foundation for care and retirement. The Foundation operates with a closed door policy, any animal that is accepted into the Foundation lives out the remainder of its natural life under the Foundation's compassionate care.
If you wish to assist the Foundation in conducting its own direct charitable activities, please contact the Foundation's office at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to make the arrangements for a charitable donation to the Foundation's animals.
