Shelly Thompson

As the director of grants, Shelly Thompson oversees all aspects of grantmaking for Maddies Fund, from legal compliance to management of grants budgeting, requests, payments and reporting. She works with the Executive Leadership Team and Senior Management Team to develop grant opportunities and encourage grant proposals that advance the foundations strategic goals and mission. She also serves on the board of both Shelter Animals Count and Animal Grantmakers. Back in 2002, after eight years at the leading technology company PeopleSoft, Inc., Shelly jumped at the opportunity to work for Maddies Fund. She believes this is a very exciting time in animal welfare, with so much progress having been made in her time at Maddies Fund, and she is thrilled to be able to help shepherd that progress even further. Growing up with six dogs and four cats taught Shelly about the fantastic things that companion animals provide unconditional love, support, caring and companionship. A lesson that paid off for a little black and white dog named Jack, Shellys current best friend. Shelly is a California native currently living in San Francisco. Go Giants
