About Us

The Albert Schweitzer Animal Welfare Fund was founded by two lifelong humanitarians, Dr. Marjorie Anchel and Dr. Herbert Rackow, to help finance animal protection projects undertaken by non-profit, tax-exempt humane organizations based in the United States. The fund also supports the work of the American Friends Service Committee of the Society of Friends (AFSCSF), generally known as the Quakers, which administers certain charitable gift funds.

The Fund founders chose the AFSCSF to administer the fund because the Quaker philosophy of non-violence is appropriate to the treatment of all living things. Historically, Quakers have shown concern for animals in both work and deed, and its financial investments are in non-violent enterprises.
