The Betty White Estate has bestowed $150,000 to Morris Animal Foundation. The funding, the foundation says, will support the Betty White Wildlife Fund, which addresses critical health problems in wildlife.

White, who passed away on Dec. 31, 2021, at the age of 99, devoted her life to improving the lives of animals, and was a member of Morris Animal Foundation for more than 50 years.

“This gift from the estate of the late Betty White is just another example of the kindness, thoughtfulness, and love for animals she embraced every day,” says the foundation’s president and CEO, Tiffany Grunert. “With this generous donation, we will continue to honor her legacy by improving the lives of animals everywhere.”

White’s tenure with Morris Animal Foundation encompassed 24 years as a board trustee and three years as board president. Additionally, she personally sponsored more than 30 foundation-funded animal health research studies to help improve the lives of cats, dogs, horses, and wildlife.

“One of my biggest passions in life is animals,” White said in 2011. “Morris Animal Foundation is a world leader in helping animals live longer, healthier lives. Like my favorite: dogs, of course. Well, maybe kitty cats are the best, but I also like horses. Some of my best friends are apes. Elephants—elephants are so wonderful! And who wouldn’t want to cuddle up with a tiger? Who am I kidding? I love them all.”
